Capitals sign Alzner to two-year contract

Friday, 07.15.2011 / 4:30 PM / NHL Free Agency 2011

Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer

Washington defenseman Karl Alzner understands why many fans and media people believe he took less than the market would suggest he's worth to re-sign with the Capitals.

A two-year, $2.57 million contract such as the one Alzner signed late Thursday does seem like a particularly cap friendly deal for a potential top-pair, stay-at-home defenseman who is only 22 years old and has already shown the durability to play all 82 games in a season.

But, as Alzner noted during a conference call Friday, the deal the Capitals were offering was the only one available to him, so his choices were either sign now or continue to wait through the summer for Washington to budge or another team to swoop in with an offer sheet that likely was never going to come.

Blackhawks sign Frolik, Lepisto

Friday, 07.15.2011 / 1:17 PM / NHL Free Agency 2011

Brian Hedger - NHL.com Correspondent

CHICAGO -- The look on Stan Bowman's face was one of relief Friday evening at the opening of the Chicago Blackhawks' annual fan convention at the Hilton Hotel.

After working out a new three-year contract with restricted free-agent forward Michael Frolik and signing free agent defenseman Sami Lepisto to a one-year deal Friday, Chicago's general manager finally can breathe a sigh of relief.

His slew of seemingly rapid-fire off-season moves is nearing a conclusion, and the Blackhawks definitely have a new look. In the past month Bowman has traded Brian Campbell, Tomas Kopecky and Troy Brouwer, added six free agents -- all signed to one-year deals -- acquired veteran defenseman Steve Montador and inked new pacts with forwards Viktor Stalberg and Frolik.

Flames re-sign Mikkelson; sign Reinhart

Thursday, 07.14.2011 / 8:36 PM / NHL Free Agency 2011

NHL.com

The Calgary Flames on Thursday re-signed restricted free-agent defenseman Brendan Mikkelson to a one-year deal and inked 2010 third-round draft choice Max Reinhart to a three-year, entry-level contract.
 
"We are very pleased that Brendan has chosen to re-sign with the Flames and continue his professional development with our organization," Flames General Manager Jay Feaster said. "He has demonstrated that he is on the verge of cracking our line-up on a full-time basis, and he remained on our roster all year because we knew we would have lost him on waivers had we tried to send him to the AHL."
 
Mikkelson had 1 assist in 19 games with the Flames last season after the club claimed him off waivers from the Anaheim Ducks in October. His two-way deal is worth $721,900. The 6-foot-3, 205-pound defenseman has 6 assists in 86 career NHL games since being drafted in the second round (No. 31 overall) by the Ducks in 2005.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.

— Canadiens forward Tim Bozon on playing for the first time since his life-threatening illness
