Center Ryan O'Reilly and the Colorado Avalanche agreed to a two-year contract Wednesday, avoiding a salary arbitration hearing. Financial terms were not disclosed, but Darren Dreger of TSN reports the contract is for $12 million, with O'Reilly being paid $5.8 million in 2014-15 and $6.2 million in 2015-16.

The sides had an arbitration hearing scheduled for later Wednesday, but it was a hearing neither side was interested in having. The contract was agreed to as Avalanche executive vice president Joe Sakic, general manager Greg Sherman, O'Reilly, and the player's agent, Pat Morris, waited to enter the hearing chamber.

"We were right outside the door, ready to do this," Sakic told Adrian Dater of the Denver Post.

Dubas joins Maple Leafs as assistant GM

Tuesday, 07.22.2014 / 3:14 PM / News

NHL.com

Brendan Shanahan began putting his stamp on the Toronto Maple Leafs by hiring 28-year-old Kyle Dubas as assistant general manager Tuesday.

Dubas spent the past three seasons as general manager of the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds of the Ontario Hockey League; he used analytics and other advanced metrics to develop systems and construct a roster that helped the Greyhounds go from last place to first place in the Western Division in three years. He did so despite being the league's youngest general manager and the second-youngest in OHL history.

That was enough to attract the interest of Shanahan, who was hired as Maple Leafs president in April.

"I don't really care about someone's age," Shanahan said during a news conference at Air Canada Centre. "He has a work ethic. I'm just looking for talented people, and the more I got to know Kyle, the more I realized that this was somebody that was an extreme talent."

Defense - STL
GOALS: 3 | ASST: 14 | PTS: 17
SOG: 48 | +/-: 12
Carl Gunnarsson, the St. Louis Blues' newest defenseman, is dealing with the aftermath of offseason hip surgery but said he plans to be back on the ice next month.

"I'm on schedule," he told Jeremy Rutherford of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this week during an interview from Sweden. "I'm just going to be patient with skating and wait a couple of extra weeks. We'll have the best setup for me over there, with the trainer and the strength coach there to assist me."

Gunnarsson was acquired by the Blues from the Toronto Maple Leafs on June 28, the second day of the NHL Draft, in a trade for defenseman Roman Polak. It came about two months after Gunnarsson had surgery on his left hip to repair a labrum tear and help fix a condition he's had since birth.

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
