    Patrick Eaves signs three-year extension with Ducks......he had a career year between the Stars and Ducks, but really seemed to click with Anaheim and now has a home there.

    The Anaheim Ducks have agreed with forward Patrick Eaves on a three-year, $9.45 million deal, the team announced the agreement on Friday.

    The 33-year-old had a career year in 2016-17 with career-highs in goals with 32 and points with 51 split between the Dallas Stars and Ducks in 79 games.

    Eaves was acquired by the Ducks on Feb. 24 for a conditional second round pick in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft that was upgraded to a first round pick after the Ducks made it to the Western Conference final.

    A 14-year NHL veteran, Eaves is at the end of a one-year, $1 million deal signed with the Stars last offseason.

    The Calgary, AB native was drafted in the first round (29th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry draft by the Ottawa Senators.

    Connolly was not tendered a qualifying offer by the Capitals.

    Stars buying out G Antti Niemi, probably the most expected move this week

    The Dallas Stars are placing goaltender Antti Niemi on waivers for the purposes of a buyout according to Mike Heika of Dallas Morning News.

    The 33-year-old became expendable for the team when they acquired Ben Bishop from the Los Angeles Kings earlier in the offseason.

    With Kari Lehtonen also on the books, the Stars had a surplus at the position

    Niemi spent the last two seasons with the Stars and appeared in 37 games during the 2016-17 campaign. He finished with a 12-12-4 record and a 3.30 goals against average.

    Oilers buying out contract of Benoit Pouliot, helping to create more cap space

    EDMONTON, Alberta -- The Oilers have placed forward Benoit Pouliot on unconditional waivers with the purposes of buying out his contract.

    Pouliot had two years left at a salary-cap hit of $4 million. By buying out Pouliot, Edmonton saves $2.67 million against the cap the next two years.

    It's the latest move by the Oilers to clear cap space with big-money deals for MVP Connor McDavid and forward Leon Draisaitl coming. Draisaitl's new contract starts next year, and McDavid's -- which could come in at around $100 million -- would begin in 2018-19.

    Edmonton already traded winger Jordan Eberle and his $6 million salary to the New York Islanders for the younger, cheaper Ryan Strome.

    Pouliot, 30, had 84 points in 180 games in three seasons with Edmonton, his sixth NHL team.

    Ottawa extends backup goalie Mike Condon for three years, $2.4 AAV

    The Ottawa Senators have signed goaltender Mike Condon to a three-year contract extension worth an average of $2.4 million per season.

    Condon, 27, was acquired from the Pittsburgh Penguins in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick in 2017 last fall. He backed up starter Craig Anderson, who periodically took time off to be with his wife as she fought cancer.

    Condon appeared in 40 games for the Senators in 2016-17, posting a 19-14-6 record with a 2.48 goals-against average, a .914 save percentage and five shutouts.

    The native of Holliston, Massachusetts, played in a franchise-high 27 consecutive games between Dec. 1 and Feb. 4 and became the fastest goaltender in franchise history to record five shutouts, doing so in his 32nd game. Condon and Anderson matched the franchise record of 10 shutouts (2001-02).

    Condon was undrafted out of Princeton and later signed to a two-year contract by the Montreal Canadiens in 2013. He was claimed by the Penguins three years later.

    Hurricanes reach deals with pending free agents Brock McGinn and Philip Samuelsson

    RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with a pair of their own pending free agents.

    General manager Ron Francis said Wednesday that forward Brock McGinn has agreed to a two-year contract and defenseman Philip Samuelsson received a one-year, two-way deal.

    McGinn, 23, will make $875,000 this season and $900,000 in 2018-19. He had seven goals and nine assists in 57 games the past season with the Hurricanes and was a restricted free agent.

    Samuelsson, 25, will make $650,000 in the NHL or $160,000 in the minors this season.

    The son of former NHL defenseman Ulf Samuelsson, now a Chicago Blackhawks assistant, had three goals and 11 assists in 25 games with Charlotte of the AHL after the Hurricanes acquired him from the Montreal Canadiens in February. His 13 career NHL games have come with the Pittsburgh Penguins and Arizona Coyotes.

    Rangers sign D Brendan Smith to four year, $17.4 million deal with some no-trade protections

    The New York Rangers, who acquired Brendan Smith from the Detroit Red Wings at the trade deadline, announced Thursday that they have agreed to terms on a new contract with the defenseman.

    The deal is for four years and $17.4 million, according to TSN. Agent Anton Thun confirmed to the Associated Press that there is some no-trade protection for Smith all four years.

    New York sent a second-round pick in the 2018 draft and a third-round selection in 2017 to Detroit for Smith, a former first-round pick.

    Smith, 28, had nine points overall last season, four of them with the Rangers, who lost in the second round of the playoffs to the Senators.

    New York bought out longtime defenseman Dan Girardi this offseason. They also traded veteran center Derek Stepan and backup goalie Antti Raanta to the Arizona Coyotes for young defenseman Anthony DeAngelo and the seventh pick in the draft. With that selection, they took 18-year-old Swedish forward Lias Andersson.

    The Rangers had been rumored to be in the running for free-agent defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk, who is from New Rochelle, New York. It's not clear how Smith's signing affects that.
