"It's obviously good to hear those words, that they have confidence in you, but it is all up to you and how you play. There's always somebody knocking on the door."

EDMONTON -- Nail Yakupov has moved on.

After spending the majority of the offseason in Russia, the Edmonton Oilers right wing has returned to prepare for the NHL season, having put a disappointing second season behind him.

"It might be a huge year for me and that's why I'm here, to work on some things and to be here and train," Yakupov said Tuesday during a visit to the Oilers summer hockey school. "I just want to be ready for the season. I'm going to be doing some different things this year. I feel more comfortable here than training at home. That's why I'm here and I will train with the Oilers prospects and the other NHL players that will come."

The Winnipeg Jets and forward Michael Frolik avoided arbitration by agreeing to terms on a one-year contract Tuesday, and general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff said the possibility of a long-term contract remains.

Frolik, who had 15 goals and 42 points in 81 games last season, will make $3.3 million in 2014-15. He and the Jets were scheduled to go to arbitration Thursday.

"Early in the process, we essentially discussed that this was not going to get to an arbitration," Cheveldayoff said. "It was more the fact that we wanted to make sure that Michael was under contract for us this coming year, and that's the benefit of the arbitration process"

Hartnell excited to get started with Blue Jackets

Tuesday, 07.29.2014 / 2:30 PM / NHL Insider

NHL.com

Shortly after being traded for the second time, forward Scott Hartnell asked some of his friends what he could expect as a member of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

Scott Hartnell
Left Wing - CBJ
GOALS: 20 | ASST: 32 | PTS: 52
SOG: 207 | +/-: 11
He likes what he's heard so far.

After seven seasons with the Philadelphia Flyers, Hartnell was traded to Columbus on June 23 for forward R.J. Umberger and a fourth-round draft pick. A fan favorite in Philadelphia, Hartnell admitted to fighting back tears when he returned to the Flyers training facility two days later to clean out his locker.

After the initial shock subsided, Hartnell approached former Flyers teammates Steve Mason and Jakub Voracek, who each started his career in Columbus. Their feedback is one reason Hartnell has a good feeling about joining an up-and-coming Blue Jackets team. He also sought advice from Jody Shelley, a former Philadelphia teammate who played for Columbus and serves as a television analyst and team ambassador.
