14 hours agoAndre Burakovsky agreed to a one-year, $3.25 million contract with the Colorado Avalanche on Monday. Acquired by the Avalanche on June 28th in exchange for Scott Kosmachuk as well as a 2020 second-round and third-round pick, Burakovsky is likely to slide into his new team's top-six forward group this upcoming season. The extremely talented 24-year-old will look to take a step forward offensively for his new team in 2019-2020, having just completed a somewhat disappointing 25-point (12 goals, 13 assists) campaign with the Caps. Given his offensive tools, Burakovsky serves as an intriguing sleeper for fantasy drafts this fall.--Chase Davis - RotoBallerSource: Sportsnet
2 weeks agoThe Toronto Maple Leafs signed defenseman Cody Ceci to a one-year contract extension on Thursday with an average annual value of $4.5 million. He was acquired from the Ottawa Senators earlier this week for Nikita Zaitsev. The Leafs also locked up center Alexander Kerfoot to a four-year contract with an AAV of $3.5 million. That's a big deal, as he is projected to be the third-line center after coming over from the Colorado Avalanche, and he was slated to be a free agent after the end of the 2019-20 campaign. Now, the deal really looks like a winner which sent Nazem Kadri to the Colorado Avalanche. Kerfoot posted 15 goals and 42 points in 78 regular-season games in 2018-19.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com/MapleLeafs
2 weeks agoThe Carolina Hurricanes re-signed goaltender Petr Mrazek to a two-year contract worth $3 million in 2019-20 and $3.25 million for the 2020-21 season. Mrazek's signing likely means Alex Nedeljkovic remains the backstop for Charlotte of the AHL, on speed-dial in case Mrazek or newcomer James Reimer go down with an injury. Carolina was able to get their man and keep Mrazek at the last minute, now it will be all eyes on general manager Don Waddell and owner Tom Dundon, as they decide whether to match an offer sheet from the Montreal Canadiens to All-Star and restricted free agent Sebastian Aho.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: Raleigh News & Observer - Chip Alexander
2 weeks agoThe New York Islanders signed free-agent goaltender Semyon Varlamov (Avalanche) to a four-year contract with an annual average value of $5 million on Monday. He posted a 20-19-9 record, 2.87 goals-against average and .909 save percentage with the Avalanche in 2018-19. He will pair with Thomas Greiss on the Island, hoping lightning strikes twice after redemption project Robin Lehner shined so very brightly during the 2018-19 campaign. We have to see who shakes out as the No. 1 goaltender, or if it is simply a 50-50 split, before recommending either Greiss or Varlamov for fantasy.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: Newsday - Andrew Gross
2 weeks agoThe Toronto Maple Leafs acquired defenseman Tyson Barrie, center Alexander Kerfoot and a sixth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft from the Colorado Avalanche on Monday in exchange for center Nazem Kadri, defenseman Calle Rosen and a third-round selection in 2020. Kerfoot posted 19 goals and 43 points in 2017-18 with the Avs, and 15 goals and 42 pints in 78 games last season. The Leafs won't lose much with Kerfoot, who can also be an effective piece on the power play, too.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com - Dan Rosen
2 weeks agoThe Colorado Avalanche traded defenseman Tyson Barrie, center Alexander Kerfoot and a sixth-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft to the Toronto Maple Leafs on Monday in exchange for center Nazem Kadri, defenseman Calle Rosen and a third-round pick in 2020. The Avalanche will also retain 50 percent of Barrie's average annual value, which is $5.5 million. The Leafs get a tremendous defenseman, something they've been searching for a while, while jettisoning Kadri, who was rather redundant, and had fallen out of favor with undisciplined play, particularly in the playoffs. Barrie will be a fantasy stud in 2019-20.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com - Dan Rosen
2 weeks agoThe Toronto Maple Leafs traded center Nazem Kadri, defenseman Calle Rosen and a third-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft to the Colorado Avalanche on Monday in exchange for defenseman Tyson Barrie, center Alexander Kerfoot and a sixth-round pick in 2020. The Avs will also eat 50 percent of Barries's salary, which comes out to $5.5 million average annual value. Kadri was bumped down the depth chart by the acquisition of John Tavares last offseason, and he didn't endear himself to the team when he had a cross-check to the head in a game in Boston, resulting in his suspension for the remainder of the first-round of the playoffs. Perhaps a change of scenery will do him some good.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com - Dan Rosen
2 weeks agoThe Minnesota Wild got their man on Monday, as they signed free-agent right wing Mats Zuccarello (Stars) to a five-year, $30 million contract. Zuccarello had a career-high 19:51 of ice time per game last season, and he posted 12 goals and 40 points across 48 games splitting time between the New York Rangers and Stars last season. He was limited to just two regular-season games after his acquisition at the trade deadline after suffering a broken arm in his debut with Dallas. However, he is healthy, and was able to play in the postseason for the Stars. He is a nice addition and a solid mid-round fantasy selection in most pools.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com/Wild
2 weeks agoThe New York Rangers inked free-agent left wing Artemi Panarin (Blue Jackets) to a seven-year contract worth $81.494 million on Monday. The Islanders took a run at Panarin, but he opted to join the rival Rangers instead, so that should set up for a nice storyline in the season. Florida was also interested in his services. Panarin rolled up 28 goals and 87 points last season, and he has 74 or more points in each of his first four NHL seasons. He is the biggest skater free-agent prize, and a fantasy stud who might just be scratching the surface at 27 years old.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: TSN.ca - Bob McKenzie
2 weeks agoThe Columbus Blue Jackets signed free-agent right wing Gustav Nyquist (Sharks) to a four-year contract with an average annual value of $5.5 million. The 29-year-old Swede was traded from the Red Wings to the Sharks at the trade deadline last season after spending six-plus seasons in Hockeytown. He posted 22 goals with a career-high 60 points across 81 games between the two organizations. He has settled into the 50-60 point range consistently over his past six seasons, and he'll be a nice addition in Columbus, especially for a team looking to replace Matt Duchene and Artemi Panarin.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: TSN.ca - Bob McKenzie
2 weeks agoThe Florida Panthers signed free-agent goaltender Sergei Bobrovsky (Blue Jackets) to a seven-year contract on Monday. The two-time Vezina Trophy winner replaced the retired Roberto Luongo in between the pipes in Sunrise. "Sergei is an elite starting goaltender who has consistently proven to be one of the best in the NHL," general manager Dale Tallon said. He posted a 37-24-1 record, 2.58 goals-against average and .913 save percentage in 62 games with the Jackets last season, and lead them to a surprising first-round sweep of the one-seed Tampa Bay Lightning. He is a legit No. 1 fantasy netminder across all formats, and Florida is on the rise with plenty of offensive talent to support him.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com/Panthers
2 weeks agoThe Dallas Stars signed free-agent right wing Corey Perry (Ducks) to a one-year, $1.5 million contract on Monday. The 34-year-old managed six goals and 10 points across 31 games for the Ducks last season, and he just wasn't himself after missing 51 games due to a knee injury. If he can bounce back to his pre-injury form, the Stars will get quite the value. Prior to the 2018-19 season, Perry had 49 or more points in 10 straight season where he played at least 45 games. He brings plenty of leadership and playoff experience to the Dallas locker room, too. However, at this point he is a late-round fantasy pick in most drafts, as last season was just downright ugly.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com/Stars
2 weeks agoThe Dallas Stars officially signed free-agent center Joe Pavelski (Sharks) to a three-year contract with an annual average value of $7 million. Pavelski was still super productive, even at 34 years old, posting 38 goals with 64 points across 75 games while posting 12 power-play goals and 21 points on the man advantage. He has 64 or more points in each of his past five seasons. Sure, his production has been declining every so slightly in small increments, but he is still a beast in the middle. He and newcomer Corey Perry give the Stars since nice added punch up front, as well as plenty of playoff experience and veteran leadership.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: The Dallas Morning News - Matthew DeFranks
2 weeks agoThe Detroit Red Wings inked defenseman Patrik Nemeth (Avalanche) to a two-year contract on Monday. Financial terms were undisclosed. He posted 10 points with 53 penalty minutes, 137 hits and 131 blocked shots across 74 games with the Avalanche in 2018-19. The latter two categories are his calling card, and that's where fantasy owners and DFS players benefit most from having Nemeth on their roster.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com/RedWings
2 weeks agoThe Detroit Red Wings signed free-agent center Valtteri Filppula (Islanders) to a two-year contract on Monday. Financial terms were undisclosed. The 35-year-old Finnish pivot posted 17 goals and 31 points with a plus-19 rating across 72 games in his lone season with the New York Islanders while notching four game-winning tallies. The 17 goals were his most since the 2013-14 season, his first in Tampa Bay. Filppula spent his first seven-plus seasons with the Red Wings, including a 66-point campaign in 2011-12 which is still his career high. His days of a solid fantasy player across the board are in the rear-view mirror, but he can still be useful in deeper pools and DFS.--Daniel E. Dobish - RotoBallerSource: NHL.com/RedWings
