The Golden Knights have agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with Jack Dugan.

Dugan was selected in the fifth round of the 2017 draft and has agreed to turn pro after just two seasons at Providence College. Dugan was a Hobey Baker Finalist in 2020 after leading the nation with 52 points (10G / 42A) in just 34 games. The 22-year-old paced the league in assists, points-per-game (1.53), power-play points (22) and even-strength points (30). He'll likely start the 2021 season in the AHL but the Golden Knights have to be very pleased with Dugan's rapid progression since being drafted three years ago.

The Ducks have signed Brendan Guhle to a two-year, $1.6 million contract extension ($800k AAV).

Guhle, who was acquired from Buffalo last February as a part of the Brandon Montour trade, split his time evenly between the AHL and NHL in 2019-20. During his time with Anaheim, he had four goals and four assists (eight points) in 30 games. With the San Diego Gulls, he was second among team defensemen with 14 points (4G / 10A) despite only appearing in 27 games. He should be a full-time NHLer in 2021 as the Ducks continue to rebuild their once promising blueline.

Leipsic had an Instagram conversation made public earlier in the week that revealed some inappropriate comments made by Leipsic about women and his teammates.

The 20-year-old Russian blueliner has spent the last two seasons in the KHL, where he's played a limited role and tallied just 11 points (1G / 10A) in a combined 86 games for CSKA Moscow.

Due to the current pause of the NHL season, the start date of the contract has yet to be determined.
