Vancouver Canucks

Prust was 'in shock' after trade to Canucks: report


Friday, 07.03.2015 / NHL.com

Forward Brandon Prust was vacationing with his fiancée in Rome this week when he got the news he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks by the Montreal Canadiens.


"Funny, I saw the headline [July 1 on Twitter], 'Zack Kassian traded to the Canadiens from the Canucks,' but I didn't see at first who he was traded for," Prust told the Montreal Gazette on Friday from his offseason home in London, Ontario.


Shortly after, Prust received a call from Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin, telling him he'd been traded to Vancouver for Kassian and a fifth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.


"[My fiancée] had been putting her makeup on for dinner and now she's bawling her eyes out, and I'm lying there in shock," Prust said. "I had 100 text messages on my phone within 10 minutes. It was very overwhelming."

The 6-1, 205-pound center ranked second on the team in plus/minus and tied for fifth in power-play goals (4) and shooting percentage (13.4). He won 237-of-472 faceoff attempts, good for a 50.2 win percentage.




San Jose Sharks

Joel Ward signs three-year contract with Sharks


Friday, 07.03.2015 / NHL.com

Free agent forward Joel Ward signed a three-year contract with the San Jose Sharks on Friday.


"Originally when the season ended, my first thought was to maybe head back [to the Washington Capitals]," Ward said, "and just kind of more and more into the summer and free agency period, it just seemed unlikely.


"So I knew that was a possibility, and when I got a chance to talk to [Sharks coach Peter [DeBoer], that really helped me sway of being in a good situation."


The Capitals signed forward Justin Williams on Wednesday and traded for forward T.J. Oshie on Thursday, making Ward expendable.


His contract is worth $9.75 million, an average annual value of $3.25 million, according to Sportsnet.


"It was a group that wanted me and it's always good to feel loved," Ward said. "I embraced it, I loved it, and I thought it was a great opportunity."

Saad signs six-year contract with Blue Jackets


Friday, 07.03.2015 / NHL.com

COLUMBUS -- It wasn't all sand, sun and fun for Brandon Saad on his vacation this week while he got over the shock of being traded by the Chicago Blackhawks and awaited word on a contract from the Columbus Blue Jackets.


But Saad started the holiday weekend by signing a six-year contract with Columbus reportedly worth $36 million.


"It's nice to be on the beach and in the sun," Saad said from Myrtle Beach, S.C. "At the same time, it's always in your mind you want to get things done and be on the team and excited to go, so that's been a little stressful."

Buffalo Sabres

O'Reilly signs seven-year extension with Sabres


Friday, 07.03.2015 / NHL.com

The Buffalo Sabres signed forward Ryan O'Reilly to a seven-year contract extension on Friday.


O'Reilly, 24, who was traded from the Colorado Avalanche on June 26, had 17 goals and 55 points in 82 games last season and had one year remaining on his contract.


"We're happy to have Ryan locked up to a long-term deal," Buffalo general manager Tim Murray said. "It's not easy to find a player who, at his age, is already established in the League as someone who plays a complete game and makes his teammates better. When we acquired him, we viewed him as someone who could immediately improve our roster but was still young enough to make an impact for several years to come, and this contract reflects that belief."




Edmonton Oilers

Friday, 07.03.2015 / NHL.com

EDMONTON -- Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid signed his first professional contract Friday, then stepped on the ice to a round of applause at Rexall Place.


Approximately 3,000 fans got their first glimpse of McDavid on the ice when the Oilers opened the third day of development camp to the public.


Prior to the practice session, the Oilers announced they agreed to terms with McDavid, 18, on a three-year, entry-level contract. He could earn as much as $3.775 million per season if he reaches all available bonuses, according to TSN.


"It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal," McDavid said. "It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."




Chicago Blackhawks

Forward Desjardins agrees to terms with Blackhawks


Friday, 07.03.2015 / NHL.com

CHICAGO -- Andrew Desjardins could've gotten a bigger raise by leaving the Chicago Blackhawks as an unrestricted free agent. What he couldn't have gotten is the familiarity and comfort he has with the Blackhawks.


Rather than leaving for more money elsewhere, Desjardins on Friday agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth $1.6 million to stay with the Stanley Cup champions.


"Obviously, the key thing is we loved it there, [my] entire family," said Desjardins, who had one goal and three assists in 21 games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. "It came down to just that, how much we enjoyed the city [and] how much we enjoyed the organization. It was a great experience. That made it an easy decision for us."
