Enroth played 41 regular-season games for the Portland Pirates (AHL) during the 2010-11 season, posting a 20-17-2 record and a 2.78 goals against average. He went 1-2 with a 2.27 goals against average in the Calder Cup playoffs.

Red Wings bring in Conklin as new backup

Wednesday, 07.20.2011 / 10:19 AM / NHL Free Agency 2011

Conklin, 35, returns to Detroit after spending the last two seasons with the St. Louis Blues. Conklin played for the Wings in 2008-09 and went 25-11-2 with a 2.51 goals-against average and .909 save percentage.

Lightning sign Stamkos to five-year deal

Tuesday, 07.19.2011 / 8:30 PM / NHL Free Agency 2011

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

At least spending the summer back home in Toronto gave Steven Stamkos the comic relief he needed throughout his long contract negotiations with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Stamkos' intention all along was to re-sign with the Lightning as he did Tuesday, but he had to laugh out loud upon hearing and seeing some of the rumors that included his name and future over the past several weeks. He couldn't ignore the fact that so many people were speculating about why he hadn't signed yet and who would eventually extend the restricted free agent an offer sheet.

"I actually got a couple of texts from friends with a picture of my face photoshopped on Phil Kessel's body," Stamkos said Tuesday night on a conference call announcing his new five-year contract reportedly worth $37.5 million. "Some people thought it was a legit photo. When they sent it to me I cracked up. I couldn't hold my laugh in that people were circulating that photo and thought it was real. That was comical."

Stamkos admitted that the rumors grew "tiresome," but he never lost a minute of sleep throughout the negotiations that took longer than both he and Lightning general manager Steve Yzerman could have anticipated.

Sabres sign Sekera, Ellis to multi-year deals

Tuesday, 07.19.2011 / 2:29 PM / NHL Free Agency 2011

The Buffalo Sabres have agreed to terms with restricted free agents Andrej Sekera and Matt Ellis on multi-year contracts. Terms of the deals were not released.

Sekera, 25, is coming off his best NHL season, when he scored 29 points and was a plus-11 in 76 games. However, the defenseman was limited to just two games in the postseason against the Philadelphia Flyers, however, due to an upper-body injury he sustained late in the regular season.

The signing avoids an arbitration hearing that had been scheduled for July 25.

Crabb signs one-year deal with Toronto

Tuesday, 07.19.2011 / 12:51 PM / NHL Free Agency 2011

The Toronto Maple Leafs announced Tuesday that they have re-signed forward Joey Crabb for one year on a reported two-way contract.

Crabb, 28, played 48 games for the Leafs this past season and finished with 15 points on 3 goals and 12 assists. He had a career-high 3-point game March 19 against Boston at Air Canada Centre. Crabb also played in 34 games with the AHL's Toronto Marlies and had 11 goals and 7 assists for 18 points. He was selected to play in the AHL All-Star Game, but could not as he was up with the Leafs.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound Alaska native has played in 77 NHL games with Toronto and Atlanta since making his debut in 2008-09. He was originally signed by Toronto on July 1, 2010.
