The Hurricanes have signed Chase Priskie to an entry-level contract.
The Red Wings have acquired Adam Erne from the Lightning for a 2020 4th Round Pick.
Erne was a second-round pick of the Lightning in 2013 and finished his first full NHL season with 20 points (7G / 13A) in 65 games. Red Wings GM Steve Yzerman is familiar with Erne from his time with Tampa Bay and added the 24-year-old to a team that has a ton of bottom-6 players. Erne will likely open 2020 on their third line.
The Blackhawks have signed Philip Holm to a one-year contract.
After playing in Sweden from 2012 to 2017, Holm came to North America in 2018. He started the year with Vancouver, where he had 29 points (11G / 18A) in 42 games in Utica (AHL). He ended up being traded to the Golden Knights, posting nine points (1G / 8A) in 21 games with Chicago (AHL). The 27-year-old went to the KHL for the 2019 season and had 26 points (7G / 19A) in 61 games. The 27-year-old provides the Blackhawks with some D-depth but will likely start 2020 in the AHL.
The Wild have re-signed Hunter Warner to a one-year contract.
Warner had seven points (1G / 6A) in 73 games with Iowa (AHL) last season. The 23-year-old had played with Iowa for the last three seasons, picking up a combined 17 points (3G / 14A) across 162 games.
The Penguins have signed John Marino to a two-year, entry-level contract.
Marino was acquired from the Oilers for a conditional sixth-round pick in late-July and signs his entry-level deal with the Penguins a few weeks later. Marino had 11 points (3G / 8A) in 33 games at Harvard University last season.
The Blue Jackets have signed Marko Dano to a one-year, two-way deal.
Dano was originally a first-round pick (No.27 overall in 2013) of the Blue Jackets but was traded to the Blackhawks as a part of the Brandon Saad deal in 2015. Since then, Dano has played 13 games for the Blackhawks, 82 games for the Jets and eight games for the Avalanche. He spent most of last season in the AHL, where he had 30 points (12G / 18A) in 51 games for the Manitoba Moose. Dano will be a fringe NHLer for the Blue Jackets and could start 2020 in the AHL.
The Predators signed Rocco Grimaldi to a one-year contract worth $1.0M (via arbitration).
Grimaldi had 13 points (5G / 8A) in 53 games with the Predators before adding three goals in five playoff games. The diminutive forward should open 2020 in the Predators’ bottom-6 after a solid showing in the second-half of 2019.
The Hurricanes have signed Anton Forsberg to a one-year deal worth $775K.
Forsberg was average in his first and only season with the Blackhawks. During his 35 NHL games, Forsberg went 10-16-4 with a 2.97 GAA and .908 SV%. While with Rockford (AHL), the 26-year-old went 15-17-1 wth a 2.64 AA and .919 SV%. With Petr Mrazek and James Reimer already in the NHL, Forsberg is likely headed to Charlotte (AHL) to start 2020.
The Blues signed Joel Edmundson to a one-year deal worth $3.1 million (via arbitration).
In his first four NHL seasons, Edmundson has never played more than 69 games. Edmundson had just two goals and nine assists (11 points) in 64 games this past season. The 26-year-old ranked fourth among Blues defensemen in TOI/gm (19:23) while leading them in hits (128) and ranking fourth in blocked shots (106).
The Hurricanes have acquired Kyle Wood from the Sharks for Trevor Carrick.
Wood, a former third-round pick (No.84 overall in 2014), improved on his 2018 numbers, scoring six goals with 29 assists (35 points) in 68 AHL games in 2019. Wood will almost certainly open the 2020 campaign with Charlotte (AHL).
The Sharks have signed Trevor Carrick to a two-year contract.
Carrick has posted back-to-back 40 point seasons in the AHL, scoring nine goals with 38 assists (47 points) in 71 games with Charlotte last year. Carrick, who has just four career NHL games under his belt, will likely open the 2020 season with the San Jose Barracuda (AHL).
The Sharks have acquired Trevor Carrick from the Hurricanes for Kyle Wood.
Carrick finished the 2019 seaosn tied for fifth among AHL defenseman with 47 points (9G / 38A) in 71 games. Since being drafted in the fourth-round in 2012, Carrick has appeared in just four career NHL games.
The Lightning have signed Kevin Shattenkirk to a one-year contract worth $1.75 million.
Shattenkirk was bought out by the Rangers and the Lightning quickly signed the right-handed defenseman to a one-year deal. Shattenkirk’s two seasons in New York were forgettable, but he should settle into a sheltered third-pairing role with PP time in Tampa Bay. He may no longer be the player capable of posting 56 points like he did in 2017, but Shattenkirk should be able to get back to 35-plus points in 2020.
The Coyotes have re-signed Adin Hill to a one-year, two-way contract.
Hill spent most of the 2019 in the AHL, but also went 7-5-0 with a 2.76 GAA, .901 SV% and one shutout in 13 NHL contests. The former third-round pick was 16-19-2 with a 2.61 GAA and .906 SV% in 36 games in Tucson (AHL). With Antti Raanta and Darcy Kuemper firmly ahead of him on the depth chart, Hill will open the 2020 season with the Roadrunners.
The Sabres have re-signed Linus Ullmark to a one-year, $1.325 million contract.
Ullmark appeared in 37 games during his first full year with the Sabres, going 15-14-5 with a 3.11 GAA and .905 SV%. Ullmark will likely play a similar number of games in 2020 as he heads into the season as Carter Hutton’s backup.

The Sabres signed Jake McCabe to a two-year contract extension worth $5.7 million ($2.85M AAV).
McCabe appeared in less than 60 games for the second straight season, posting 14 points (4G / 10A) in 59 games in his fourth full year in Buffalo. On the defensive-side of the puck, McCabe averaged 1.7 hits and 1.7 blocked shots per game while ranking third among Sabres’ defensemen in SH TOI/gm (2:09) and fifth in total ice-time (18:57).
The Blues have signed Nikita Alexandrov to a three-year, entry-level contract.
Alexandrov was a second-round pick (No.62 overall) in this summer’s draft. The 18-year-old centre had 27 goals and 34 assists (61 points) in 64 QMJHL games last year. He will return to the Charlottetown Islanders for his third season in 2020.
