TIME (ET) TRANSACTION

9:26PM Columbus Blue Jackets sign UFA winger Kristian Huselius (4-year, $4.75 million).

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I know I did not want him here for that kind of money or term.

7:49 pm, David Spina Phoenix (Re-signing)
N/A Length of contract: TBD

7:45 pm, Al Montoya Phoenix (Re-signing)

5:16PM Dallas Stars sign RFA forward B.J. Crombeen (1-year, undisclosed).

5:01PM Colorado Avalanche re-sign RFA forward Wojtek Wolski (2-years, undisclosed).

4:58PM Pittsburgh Penguins sign UFA defenceman Brooks Orpik to a six-year, $22.5 million contract.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
I think that closes out the major names on the backline.

4:41PM Minnesota Wild re-sign RFA defenceman Kurtis Foster (undisclosed).

Columbus Dispatch: Beatwriter Aaron Portzline reports in the teams blog the BlueJackers traded Nikolai Zherdev and Dan Fritsche to the Rangers for Fedor Tyutin and Christian Backman.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
It's either goodbye Jagr or goodbye Shanahan. Zherdev is a good young forward but was a contract headache a few years ago and apparently will not be staying in Columbus with Fliatov which is kind of strange unless he was a bigger headache than he was worth for Scott Howson and Ken Hitchcock. Tyutin helps Columbus on the backline which sets the stage for a big Orpik offer.

Tsn.ca: Confirms trade on it's homepage.

3:38PM Atlanta Thrashers sign UFA defenceman Ron Hainsey to a five-year, $22.5 million contract.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
A bit more than the Isles paid Streit for a younger and more well-rounded defender, good signing for Don Waddell.

3:03PM Ottawa Senators sign UFA Forward Jarkko Ruutu to a three-year, $3.9 million contract.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Another disturber just left the division, good for Islanders.

Nolan Baumgartner & Alexandre Bolduc resigned with Vancouver.(terms undisclosed)

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Either Pittsburgh is saving money for Malkin/Orpik (cbc reports Malkin just resigned) or they intent to overpay someone to play wing with Crosby and Malik.

Note-Malkin's new contract does not start until his current one expires next summer.

2:33PM Ottawa Senators sign UFA Forward Shean Donovan to a two-year contract.

1:52PM Boston Bruins sign RFA Forward Petteri Nokelainen. (Undisclosed)

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Nokelainen was reportedly resigned for two years a few days ago, sometimes these signings and the paperwork have a different time frame to when they become listed.

Randy Jones resigning was on Flyers website yesterday but could posted on Tsn in a day or two.

1:22PM Dallas Stars sign UFA Forward Sean Avery to a four-year, $15.5 million contract.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
The circus has left town, peace and quiet has returned to camp Cablevision. Will be funny reading the Ranger spin doctors now write how big a problem he was.

1:00PM Calgary Flames sign UFA defenceman Jim Vandermeer (undisclosed) and UFA forward Curtis Glencross. (undisclosed)

12:45PM Vancouver Canucks sign UFA goaltender Curtis Sanford. (Undisclosed)

12:35PM Detroit Red Wings sign UFA forward Marian Hossa to a one-year contract worth $7.4 million.

NYI Fan Central Comments:
Very impressive for a player to take a chance on an injury here that could cost him tens of millions to maybe win for a year in Detroit. Pittsburgh made the finals but now will start losing the trade for Hossa unless they sign Jagr or trade for a player of equal ability.

11:04 am, Josef Melichar Carolina
$1 million Length of contract: 1 year

10:41 am, Tyler Sloan Washington (Re-signing)
