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 Blues have signed Mackenzie MacEachern to a one-year extension worth $750K.

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 Hurricanes have signed Teuvo Teravainen to a five-year extension worth $27.0 million ($5.4M AAV).
Teravainen is on-pace or 17 goals and 50 assists (67 points), which would be career-highs in helpers and points. Teravainen was set to become a restricted free agent this offseason with a two-year, $5.72M deal expiring.
The Maple Leafs have signed Trevor Moore to a two-year extension worth $1.55M ($775K AAV).
Moore spent some time with the Maple Leafs while Zach Hyman was sidelined, collecting one goal and two assists in six games. Moore has impressed with the Marlies as well, tying for the team-lead in goals (19) and adding seven assists (26 points) in 30 games.
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 Sharks have signed Lukas Radil to a one-year extension.
Radil came over to North America after spending the las three years in the KHL. The 28-year-old had six points (1G / 5A) in 11 AHL games and nine points (6G / 3A) in 18 NHL games since being recalled. Radil is carrying a strong 58.6 CF% and +2.8 CF%rel and appears to be a candidate to remain with the Sharks through the remainder of the season.

The Penguins signed Jake Guentzel to a five-year extension worth $30M ($6.0M AAV).
Guentzel was set to become a restricted free agent this summer but is now signed though the 2023-24 season. Guentzel is on-pace to shatter all of his previous career highs, picking up 15 goals and 18 assists (33 points) in 37 games—a 33-goal, 40-assist (73 points) pace.
The Blues have signed Robert Bortuzzo to a three-year extension worth $4.125M ($1.375M AAV).
Bortuzzo has been with the Blues since 2015, collecting nine goals and 16 assists (25 points) in 175 games. Bortuzzo will continue serving as a bottom-pairing defenseman for the Blues for the next three seasons.

The Maple Leafs have signed Calle Rosen to a two-year extension worth $1.5M ($750K AAV).
Rosen figures to be a part of the Maple Leafs NHL plans in 2018-19 after signing him to a one-way deal. Rosen is an undrafted free agent who came over from Sweden. He has taken his offensive game to a new-level this year, picking up 19 points (2G / 17A) in 24 games with the Marlies.
Nylander has reportedly signed a six-year extension with the Maple Leafs worth $6.9M AAV.
With only a couple of minutes to spare, Nylander inked the much anticipated extension and could be back in the Maple Leafs lineup as soon as next week. Nylander adds to an already deep Maple Leafs top-9, where he figures to slot in next to Auston Matthews. A season ago, Nylander had 20 goals and 41 assists in 82 games.
The Jets have signed Logan Shaw to a two-way contract.
The Predators have signed Pekka Rinne to a two-year extension worth $10M ($5.0M AAV).
The Lightning have signed Yanni Gourde to a six-year extension worth $30.996M ($5.166M AAV).
Gourde was an undrafted free agent that worked his way to the NHL after playing 298 AHL games and 38 ECHL games. 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.

The Golden Knights have signed Alex Tuch to a seven-year extension worth $33.25 million ($4.75M AAV).

Tuch also added 10 points (6G / 4A) in 20 playoff games during the Golden Knights run to the finals. Tuch joins Jonathan Marchessault, Reilly Smith, Brayden McNabb, Shea Theodore and Colin Miller as players under 30-years-old on long-term contracts.
