Restricted free agent defenseman Dmitry Kulikov signed a three-year contract with the Florida Panthers on Friday. Financial terms were not released, but TSN reported the total value to be $13 million.

"He has so much ability and this is a fair contract, it's what what guys around the League are getting paid," general manager Dale Tallon told the Miami Herald. "Now it's time for him to make a statement and be a leader on our team. He has all the ability in the world. He just has to channel it in the right direction.

"We're happy to have him in the fold. He's a great kid, still a young guy. He has tremendous ability. It's hard to find those guys."

Del Zotto determined to prove doubters wrong

Free agent defenseman Michael Del Zotto is looking for a job, not only to continue his NHL career.

"I'm just waiting for the right opportunity to prove myself again, and prove everyone who's doubted me wrong," the 24-year-old told Sportsnet on Thursday.

Del Zotto finished last season with the Nashville Predators after being traded by the New York Rangers. In Nashville, he was scratched from four of the final five games and finished with one goal and four assists in 25 games.

His total of 16 points was well off his career-high 41 of two seasons back.

Blackhawks confident they can get salary cap to fit

Friday, 07.18.2014 / 7:47 PM / NHL Insider

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The goal hasn't changed for the Chicago Blackhawks, but the roster must before another chase for the Stanley Cup begins.

Brad Richards
Center - CHI
GOALS: 20 | ASST: 31 | PTS: 51
SOG: 259 | +/-: -8
Blackhawks general manager Stan Bowman doesn't need to pick apart the bulk of his team, like he did after winning the Cup in 2010, but somebody under contract won't be in Chicago for the 2014-15 season thanks to another salary-cap issue.

Following Bowman's free-agent acquisition of veteran center Brad Richards on July 1, the Blackhawks are over the NHL's $69 million hard salary cap by $2.2 million, according to CapGeek.com.

"We certainly have to be ready to go by October, that's the goal," Bowman said Friday at the annual Blackhawks Convention at the Chicago Hilton. "A lot of things change between now and then. You have to display some patience."

Other than acquiring forward Scott Hartnell in a trade with the Philadelphia Flyers on June 23, the Columbus Blue Jackets didn't make any major moves this summer. But Columbus president of hockey operations John Davidson sees a fully formed team capable of taking a big step during the 2014-15 season.

"This is a team that I think now is being recognized not just as a team that is young and up-and-coming, it's a pretty good hockey club. We have a chance here to make a real good statement with this upcoming season," Davidson told the Blue Jackets website. "I like this hockey club. I like it a lot. I like its character, I like the way it plays, I like the intestinal fortitude it has, I like how it sticks up for each other. I like all aspects of it. We have a chance to be a very good club."
