After injuries, Murray poised to boost Blue Jackets

When the Columbus Blue Jackets selected defenseman Ryan Murray with the No. 2 pick in the 2012 NHL Draft, they envisioned a player who could quickly become a fixture along their blue line.

Injuries have kept Murray from reaching his potential; he played 12 games last season after sustaining a knee injury, after having knee surgery in the summer of 2014. He would miss five additional weeks with a high ankle sprain he sustained in November.

But the 21-year-old appears primed to turn things around this season.

"I've been on the ice for almost two months now," Murray told the Blue Jackets website. "I've done some things differently this summer, changed it up a bit; the workouts have been less weight-based and more body and movement-focused things.

"I spent part of the summer at home in Saskatchewan, hanging out with my friends and family, relaxing, playing golf, and it was great. It was good to go home and recharge, and now I'm back here and ready to work."

Bernier, 26, went 21-28-7 with a 2.87 goals-against average and .912 save percentage in 58 games for the Maple Leafs last season, when he made $3.4 million, according to TSN.

Former NHL forward Ryan Smyth said he hasn't been asked but has considered letting Edmonton Oilers prospect Connor McDavid live with his family this season.

"Haven't been contacted at all (about McDavid) … it's all rumors," Smyth told the Edmonton Journal on Monday. "I haven't put my name forward. It's not that I haven't thought about it though."

Smyth, who played for the Oilers for 15 seasons and retired in 2014, lived with Kelly Buchberger and his wife Carla when he started his NHL career in 1995, the Journal said.

"Three or four months I lived with them," Smyth said. "I babysat for them and they fed me."

Center Sean Couturier signed a multiyear contract with the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday. Terms were not released, but Sportsnet reported it's for six years and $26 million, an average annual value of $4.33 million.

Couturier, the eighth pick in the 2011 NHL Draft, could have become a restricted free agent after this season.

"It's a great organization, they believe in me," Couturier told CSNPhilly.com. "I'm really happy to be there for the next six years. I love the organization, the city. I think the future is bright in Philly. Hopefully we can do some good things during those six years."

Predators sign forward Wilson to four-year contract

Forward Colin Wilson signed a four-year, $15.75 million contract with the Nashville Predators on Monday to avoid arbitration. Wilson will be paid $3.75 million in 2015-16, and $4 million in 2016-17, 2017-18 and 2018-19 for an average annual value of $3.9375 million, according to the Predators.

Wilson's hearing was scheduled for Tuesday in Toronto. The Predators also avoided arbitration with Craig Smith when the forward signed a five-year, $21.25 million contract on July 20.

"Certainly we were hopeful based on the [Smith] signing that [it] gave us a pretty clear position we felt where Colin could fit," Predators general manager David Poile told the Tennessean. "We did make the trip up here to Toronto. We met [Sunday] night with our lawyers to go over the brief and what have you, so we were ready to go to arbitration, but a couple of calls [Sunday] night and one [Monday] morning sort of solidified that we were both in the same place."

Penguins add to forward depth with Bonino, Fehr

Tuesday, 07.28.2015 / 8:42 PM / News

Wes Crosby - NHL.com Correspondent

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins bolstered their bottom-six forward group Tuesday by signing free agent Eric Fehr and acquiring Nick Bonino from the Vancouver Canucks along with defenseman Adam Clendening and a second-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft for center Brandon Sutter and a 2016 third-round pick.

Fehr received a three-year contract with an average annual value of $2 million.

Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said he had discussed a possible trade with Vancouver since about a month before the 2015 NHL Draft.

"The two deals went hand-in-hand so we can add more depth," Rutherford said. "We have enough good players now that guys are going to have to compete for those spots [in training camp] and compete for them all year. If a guy falls off, there's a guy waiting to jump right in there.

"I like the fact that we have enough guys that each guy can push each other."
