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 Senators have signed Patrick Sieloff to a two-year, two-way contract extension worth $1.35M ($675K AAV).

Sieloff, 24, had one goal and nine assists (10 points) in 58 games with Belleville (AHL) last season. The former second-round pick (No.42 overall in 2012) has not made a big impact on the NHL level, but he has scored a goal in each of his two NHL games. As a player who has never topped 12 points in an OHL or AHL season, Sieloff likely won’t have any fantasy impact if he ever becomes a full-time NHLer.

The Canadiens have re-signed Antti Niemi to a one-year deal worth $950K.

Following a disastrous start to the 2017-18 season with the Penguins and Panthers, Niemi settled in in Montreal. The veteran netminder went 7-5-4 with a 2.46 GAA, .929 SV% and one shutout in 17 starts and two relief appearances with the Canadiens. He will likely be back as the Habs’ primary backup behind Carey Price next season.

The Sabres have signed Casey Mittelstadt to a three-year entry-level contract.

Mittelstadt, 19, was the Sabres’ first-round pick (No.8 overall) in 2017 and will turn pro after just one year at the University of Minnesota. Mittelstadt finished his freshman campaign with 11 goals and 19 assists (30 points) in 34 games. He is expected to report to the Sabres and should make his NHL debut down the stretch.

The Wild have signed Jordan Greenway to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Greenway, 21, was a second round pick (No.50 overall) in 2015 and is set to join the Wild after finishing up his junior year at Boston University. Greenway is an absolute monster, standing in at 6-foot-5, 230 lbs. and is coming off of a year in which he scored 13 goals with 22 assists (35 points) in 36 games. He could jump right into the Minnesota lineup and could be an important addition for them in the postseason.

The Bruins signed Ryan Donato to a two-year entry-level contract and he will likely make his NHL debut on Monday.

Donato, 21, just wrapped up his third year at Harvard University where he collected 26 goals and 17 assists (43 points) in just 29 games. The Bruins are really banged up, so Donato could be thrust into a key role right from the get-go. The Boston native was a second round pick (No. 56 overall) in 2014.

The Lightning have signed Alex Barre-Boulet to a three-year, entry-level contract.

Barre-Boulet, 20, is an undrafted free agent in his fourth season in the QMJHL. The undersized forward (5-foot-9 / 167 lbs) isn’t the first small, undrafted free agent the Lightning have signed in years past. Barre-Boulet has picked up an impressive 49 goals and 55 assists (104 points) in just 57 games with Blainville-Boisbriand this season.

The Sharks have signed Aaron Dell to a two-year contract extension worth $3.8M ($1.9M AAV).

Dell’s play has slipped a little bit recently but he has been strong for most of the 201-7-18 season. Overall, the 28-year-old is 25-11-4 with a 2.39 GAA and .920 SV% in his 45-game NHL career. He will continue to share the Sharks’ crease with Martin Jones for at least the next two seasons.
