Joensuu, 25, missed most of last season with a sports hernia, but he played in seven games, recording two assists.

LaBarbera, 33, also played for the Coyotes last year and was 4-6-2 with a 2.64 GAA and a .923 save percentage.

The latest big signing is forward Nathan Horton who is leaving the Boston Bruins to join the Columbus Blue Jackets on a seven-year deal.

Horton scored 13 goals and 22 points for the Bruins last season and won a Stanley Cup with Boston in 2011. In 591 career games for the Bruins and Panthers, Horton has scored 198 goals and 402 points. Horton will undergo shoulder surgery this summer ans is expected to be out until December.

The biggest news of the day however might be Daniel Alfredsson who is leaving the Ottawa Senators after 17 seasons in the nation's capital.

According to TSN Hockey Insider Darren Dreger, the long-time Ottawa captain made the Senators aware of his decision on Thursday night and will sign a one-year, $5.5 million contract with the Detroit Red Wings.

Last season, Alfredsson scored 10 goals and 16 assists in 47 games. He also added 4 goals and 10 points in 10 playoff games.

The native of Gothenburg, Sweden has spent his entire career with Ottawa, scoring 426 goals and adding 682 assists in 1,178 games.

The 40-year-old veteran was originally selected in the sixth round by the Senators at the 1994 NHL Entry Draft.

Heading to Ottawa meanwhile is left-winger Clarke MacArthur who signed a two-year $6.5 million dollar deal with the Senators. MacArthur, who was originally drafted 73rd overall by Buffalo in 2003, scored eight goals and 20 points for the Maple Leafs last season.

The Edmonton Oilers have also made a splash in free agency adding defenceman Andrew Ference on a four-year, $13 million deal. Ference, who was born in Edmonton, had four goals, 13 points and 35 penalty minutes while averaging nearly 20 minutes of ice time per game for the Boston Bruins last season.

In 760 career NHL games for the Bruins, Flames and Penguins, Ference has 37 goals, 193 points and 645 penalty minutes.

The Oilers also signed veteran forward Boyd Gordon to a three-year deal and goaltender Jason LaBarbera to a one-year deal.

Elsewhere, Ryan Clowe has joined the New Jersey Devils on a five-year deal worth $4.85 million per season. Clowe split time between the San Jose Sharks and New York Rangers last season, scoring three goals and 19 points in 40 games. The Fermeuse, NL native has 105 career goals and 279 points in 435 NHL games.

The Pittsburgh Penguins signed defenceman Rob Scuderi to a  four-year deal. The Penguins originally drafted Scuderi 134th overall in 1998. After five sesaons with the Penguins, Scuderi spent the last four years with the Los Angeles Kings.

Ray Emery meanwhile has agreed to a one-year, $1.65 million deal with the Philadelphia Flyers.

Emery had a record of 17-1-0 record as the No. 2 goalie for the Stanley Cup winning Blackhawks last season and posted a .922 save percentage and 1.94 goals against average. This contract appears to be a move by Emery to re-establish himself as a starting goaltender before signing a potentially more lucrative and longer term deal later on.

Defenceman Mike Komisarek meanwhile is set to join his third NHL team. The former Montreal Canadien and Toronto Maple Leaf has agreed to a one-year, $700,000 dollar deal with the Carolina Hurricanes.

The San Jose Sharks meanwhile re-signed defenceman Scott Hannan to one-year, $1 million deal and Tyler Kennedy to a  two-year deal worth $2.3 million per season. The Sharks acquired Kennedy from the Penguins in a trade on draft for a second round pick in this year's draft. The Sharks also made Logan Couture's five-year extension worth $6 million per season official on Friday.

Elsewhere, the Phoenix Coyotes have been very busy on Frenzy day. The Coyotes signed veteran free agent centre Mike Ribeiro to a four-year, $22 million deal and re-upped with forward Lauri Korpikoski on a four-year deal worth $10 million. The Coyotes also signed goalie Thomas Greiss to a one-year $750,000 deal and re-signed centre Kyle Chipchura.

Other big names still available include forwards David Clarkson, Jarome Iginla and Jaromir Jagr, centre Tyler Bozak as well as goaltenders Tim Thomas and Ilya Bryzgalov.

The Florida Panthers meanwhile have re-signed forward Shawn Matthias to a two-year deal with an average annual value of $1.75 million.

Goaltender Evgeni Nabokov has also re-signed with the New York Islanders on a one-year $3.25 million contract. Peter Regin has also agreed to join the Islanders on a one-year $750,000 contract after spending the first five years of his NHL career with the Senators.

Several other free agents have already agreed to new deals which are expected to be made official on Friday.

Those names include Vincent Lecavalier who is expected to sign a five-year, $22.5 million contract with the Philadelphia Flyers and Daniel Briere who agreed to a two-year, $8 million deal with the Montreal Canadiens.

In other news from the day, the trade sending Shawn Horcoff from the Edmonton Oilers to the Dallas Stars in exchange for Philip Larsen and a seventh-round draft pick in 2017 was finalized.

CALGARY - The Calgary Flames crowded their crease with the signing of Finnish goaltender Karri Ramo on Friday.

Ramo joins goaltenders Miikka Kiprusoff, Reto Berra and Joey Macdonald under contract with the Flames, although Calgary awaits Kiprusoff's decision on whether the 36-year-old veteran will retire or return to the NHL for the final year of his contract.

But the Flames are already ushering in the post-Kiprusoff era by signing Ramo to a two-year contract worth $5.8 million.

Calgary also picked up defenceman Kris Russell from the St. Louis Blues, finalized contract terms with centre Corban Knight and re-signed centre Greg Nemiscz to a one-year extension worth $725,000.

Calgary acquired Ramo's rights from Montreal in 2012. He's spent the past four seasons with the KHL's Avangard Omsk, but has played 48 NHL games with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Ramo's record with Omsk this past season was 26-9-5 with a goals-against average of 2.00 and a save percentage of .929.

Chicago re-ups with Handzus, Rozsival

Mike Halford

Jul 5, 2013, 1:38 PM EDT

After dealing away Dave Bolland and Michael Frolik at the NHL Entry Draft, Chicago set about retaining two key contributors to its Stanley Cup championship on Friday, agreeing to terms with veteran center Michal Handzus and defenseman Michal Rozsival.

Handzus, 36, was acquired at the trade deadline from San Jose and proved to be a stellar pickup, becoming the club’s second-line center with Bolland injured and posting 3G-8A-11PTS in the postseason.

Rozsival, 32, had a good regular season (highlighted by his plus-18 rating) and chipped in with four assists and a plus-9 rating in the playoffs, appearing in every game while averaging over 19 minutes per night.

Financial terms of the deals were not released immediately. Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun reports the Handzus deal is for one-year, $1 million (a notable pay drop from the $2.5 million he was making annually on his last deal.)

As for Rozsival, he signed with Chicago last summer on a one-year, $2 million deal.

I'm still in shock. One good thing that immediately comes to mind is that by losing Seguin ( $ 5.75 million ) and Peverley ( $ 3.25 million ) and adding Eriksson ( $ 4.25 million ) it gives Boston an extra $ 4.75 million to add another RW to take Horton's spot.


Rumor has it that He had " off-ice" issues.

Thats no rumor. Bruins had to have a security guard in his room during the playoffs so he wouldn't leave it to go party at night.

The Boston media is throwing this story around:


from bostonherald.com/sports:

This trade might not be popular among all Bruins fans, who envisioned Seguin as a future superstar. But he might go down as a player who squandered his great gifts. Multiple sources said the 21-year-old Seguin crossed the line this season with reckless partying.

It apparently got so bad that during the playoffs, the Bruins ordered Seguin to live in a hotel, where a guard was hired to make sure he stayed in his room. But Chiarelli repeatedly defended Seguin, calling him “a good kid and a terrific player” and “a tremendous package of speed and skill.”




Another report out there states that Seguin partied pretty in Toronto when Boston played there for Games 3 and 4 during their first round matchup. Apparently it was noticed by a lot of media that Seguin wore the same clothes to the arena 3 days in a row.

Preds keep spending: four years, $10 million for Nystrom

Mike Halford

Jul 5, 2013, 3:44 PM EDT

When Preds head coach Barry Trotz said his team was going to have a very busy summer, he wasn’t kidding.

Nashville has made its fourth major signing of the free agency period, agreeing to terms with veteran forward Eric Nystrom on a four-year, $10 million deal.

The contract carries an average annual cap hit of $2.5 million and, combined with the new deals given to Viktor Stalberg, Mark Cullen and Matt Hendricks, the Preds have now spent over $36 million.

Nystrom, 30, has spent the last two years with the Dallas organization, scoring a career-high 16 goals in 2011-12 and chipping in with seven in 48 games last year.

The former No. 10 overall pick at the 2002 NHL Entry Draft spent time with Calgary and Minnesota prior to playing for the Stars, and has earned a reputation as a gritty, hard-working winger that plays a two-way game.
