NHL Free Agency 2013

Blackhawks re-sign Rozsival, Handzus

Friday, 07.05.2013 / 1:44 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

The Chicago Blackhawks are keeping two veterans who contributed on their Stanley Cup championship team in the fold.

Chicago announced Friday that it has re-signed defenseman Michal Rozsival to a two-year contract and center Michal Handzus to a one-year contract. Dollar amounts were not disclosed.

Rozsival, who signed a one-year contract with the Blackhawks last September, played most of the regular season in a platoon role as the sixth defenseman with Sheldon Brookbank, but he appeared in every game in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and his ice time increased as he moved into the No. 5 role, in front of Nick Leddy.

Nabokov, 37, went 23-11-7 with a 2.50 goals-against average and .910 save percentage in 41 games with the Islanders in 2012-13, helping the team make the Stanley Cup Playoffs for the first time since 2007.

Daniel Alfredsson had spent his 18-year career with the Ottawa Senators, the last 14 with the 'C' on his sweater. At 40, he has had a change of heart.

Alfredsson signed a one-year contract with the Detroit Red Wings that is reportedly worth $5.5 million on Friday. He reportedly informed Senators general manager Bryan Murray that he will not return during a conversation late Thursday.

The Boston Bruins also were reportedly in the running for Alfredsson, but the fit with Detroit appears to be a good one.

Report: Coyotes re-sign Korpikoski to four-year deal

Friday, 07.05.2013 / 11:56 AM / NHL Free Agency 2013 reported Friday that the Phoenix Coyotes have re-signed forward Lauri Korpikoski to a four-year contract, with an average annual value of $2.5 million per season.

Korpikoski, 26, had six goals and five assists in 36 games with the Coyotes in 2012-13. He had been scheduled to become a restricted free agent if not signed by noon ET on Friday.

Originally selected by the New York Rangers with the 19th pick of the 2004 NHL Draft, the Coyotes acquired him in a 2009 trade in exchange for Enver Lisin.

In five seasons with the Rangers and Coyotes, Korpikoski has 53 goals and 60 assists in 336 games.

The free-agent signing period is scheduled to begin at noon ET on Friday, but the pool of players to choose from became slightly diluted when Vincent Lecavalier agreed to terms with the Philadelphia Flyers, Danny Briere agreed to a deal with the Montreal Canadiens and Pascal Dupuis re-signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The window now is open for all 30 teams to talk to the players who could become unrestricted free agents Friday. The list is growing with more players being issued compliance buyouts.

With Lecavalier, Briere and Dupuis off the board, here is's updated profile of the 13 most notable potential unrestricted free agents likely to be available Friday (listed in alphabetical order).

Buyouts strengthen depth of free-agent pool

Dan Rosen - Senior Writer

The compliance buyouts still are rolling in and constantly changing the landscape of what teams can expect the unrestricted free agent market to look like when it opens at noon ET on Friday.

The compliance buyout window closed at 5 p.m. ET Thursday, and it is abundantly clear the market will be deeper with defensemen because of these buyouts.

There were eight veteran blueliners who otherwise wouldn't be an unrestricted free agent Friday if not for the compliance buyout available to all 30 NHL teams.

Briere to join Canadiens with two-year contract

Thursday, 07.04.2013 / 9:11 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

Arpon Basu - Managing Editor

Back in the summer of 2007, Danny Briere was one of the biggest unrestricted free agents on the market and the Quebec native had a chance to come home and play for the Montreal Canadiens.

He chose not to, instead signing an eight-year, $52 million contract with the Philadelphia Flyers and getting booed at Bell Centre practically every time he visited.

When the final two years of that contract were bought out by the Flyers last week, and Briere suddenly had another opportunity to join the Canadiens, he jumped on it.

The Canadiens and Briere agreed Thursday on a two-year contract reportedly worth $8 million, bringing him back to his home province six years after he spurned a competitive offer from Montreal.

"It was a decision between the two teams that tore me up," Briere said in a conference call with reporters. "But in my heart, I grew up in Quebec and always dreamed of playing for the Canadiens. I feel blessed that I received this second chance. … That's why I wanted to do everything possible to sign with the Canadiens."

Thursday, 07.04.2013 / 9:00 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

McGrattan played 19 games with the Flames in 2012-13, with three goals and 49 penalty minutes. He was acquired off waivers Feb. 28.

Thursday, 07.04.2013 / 8:24 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013
