The Rangers signed K'Andre Miller to a three-year entry-level contract on March 13th.

Miller was the No.22 overall pic in 2018 and wrapped up his second season at the University of Wisconsin with 18 points (7G / 11A) in 36 games. He started the college season on team suspension, which the Wisconsin State Journal reported was because of academic woes, and he had a disappointing showing in the World Junior Championships, where he had two assists in five games. He'll likely report to Hartford (AHL) if the NHL season resumes or for the start of the 2021 season.

The Sharks signed Radim Simek to a four-year, $9.0 million contract extension ($2.25M AAV) on March 9th.

Overall, he missed 22 games, recording nine points (2G / 7A) with 1.9 hits and 1.3 blocked shots per game in 48 games. Signing a four-year extension means the Sharks have Simek, Brent Burns, Erik Karlsson and Marc-Edouard Vlasic all signed through at least 2024.
