NHL Free Agents News

Who signed where and for how much? All of the NHL’s latest free agent signings are right here. Your preseason hub after free agency opens on July 1st.

The Blackhawks have signed Collin Delia to a three-year extension worth $3.0 million ($1.0M AAV).

With Corey Crawford continuing to deal with concussion issues, Delia has been thrust into the NHL after just 45 career AHL starts. The 24-year-old has performed extremely well for the Blackhawks so far, going 6-2-3 with a 2.98 GAA and .923 SV%. Delia has the look of a potential starting goalie and a three-year contract with a $1.0M AAV cap-hit is a very team-friendly deal.

The Maple Leafs have signed Auston Matthews to a five-year contract extension worth $58.17 million ($11.634M AAV).

Matthews was set to become a restricted free-agent this summer but signed through 2023-24 with an $11.634M cap-hit. Matthews has had a strong season, scoring 23 goals on 121 shots (19.0 SH%) with 23 assists (46 points) in 38 games. Matthews has broken through as one of the best goal-scorers in the league but continues to have a difficult time staying healthy—missing 20 games last season and 14 so far this year.

The Capitals have signed Pheonix Copley to a three-year extension worth $3.3 million ($1.1M AAV).

The Capitals backup has appeared in 19 games this season, going 10-5-3 while ranking 33rd in GAA (2.98) and SV% (.903). Copley has been a fine backup for Braden Holtby and will likely continue to start 30 percent of the Capitals games moving forward.

The Wild have signed Alex Stalock to a three-year extension worth $2.349 million ($783K AAV).

Stalock is in his third season with the Wild and has gone 6-5-0 with a 2.92 GAA and .894 SV% in 14 games. The Wild are comfortable with Stalock as their backup and an $783K AAV cap-hit will allow them to easily move-on in the future if need be.

The Hurricanes have signed Jordan Martinook to a two-year extension worth $4.0 million ($2.0M AAV).

“Jordan has really fit in well with our group and provides veteran leadership both on and off the ice,” said GM Don Waddell. “He skates with a relentless energy that epitomizes the way Coach Brind’Amour wants the Hurricanes to play.” The 26-year-old winger has 10 goals and three assists (13 points) in 50 games during his first season with the Hurricanes.

The Oilers have signed Mikko Koskinen to a three-year contract extension worth $13.5 million ($4.5M AAV).

Koskinen’s NHL career got off to an excellent start, going 11-3-1 with a 2.12 GAA, .930 SV% and three shutouts in his first 16 appearances. However, since then he is 3-7-0 with a 3.94 GAA and .879 SV% in 11 games. It is a bit alarming to sign a goalie to that kind of money in the middle of a very difficult stretch but in Koskinen’s defence, he doesn’t have a great blue line in front of him.

The Penguins have signed Casey DeSmith to a three-year extension worth $3.75M ($1.25M AAV).

The undrafted 27-year-old netminder has gone 12-7-4 with a 2.47 GAA and .924 SV% in 26 games with the Penguins this season. DeSmith has played very well while Matt Murray was sidelined and proved that he is a more than capable No.2 netminder who can serve as a No.1 when called upon.

The 26-year-old exploded onto the scene in 2017-18, scoring 25 goals and 39 assists (64 points) in 82 games. Gourde will turn 27 in December, so this contract will take him through his age-33 season.
