Thursday, 07.18.2013 / 3:58 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

Thomas Hickey found a home on the New York Islanders' blue line, and Thursday the team rewarded the restricted free agent with a two-year contract. Terms of the deal were not announced, but Newsday reported the total value to be $1.35 million.

Hickey, 24, made his NHL debut last season and had four points and a plus-9 rating in 39 games. He appeared in two of the team's six Stanley Cup Playoff games against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Los Angeles Kings made Hickey the No. 4 pick in the 2007 NHL Draft, but after playing 212 games with the Manchester Monarchs in the American Hockey League, Hickey was waived and claimed by the Islanders on Jan. 15. He had 75 points with the Monarchs and was selected to play in the 2012 AHL All-Star Game.

Penner signs one-year deal to return to Ducks

Tuesday, 07.16.2013 / 6:43 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

Curtis Zupke - Correspondent

Dustin Penner never fully wanted to leave the Anaheim Ducks in the first place. He had just won the Stanley Cup and was part of one of the more exciting lines in the NHL with Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry.

Even after he left Anaheim in 2007 to sign an offer sheet with the Edmonton Oilers, he maintained a friendship with his former teammates and was often seen joking with Getzlaf outside the dressing room after games against his old team. Penner even kept his Newport Beach residence, just down the freeway from Honda Center. During the lockout last fall and winter, Penner wore a Ducks jersey when he worked out at Anaheim's practice facility.

All the while Penner felt that he could come full circle from the day he signed a five-year, $21.2 million offer sheet with the Oilers in the summer of 2007 and return to his NHL roots.

Tuesday, 07.16.2013 / 5:47 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

The native of Moncton, New Brunswick, has played in 40 NHL games, all with the Jets' franchise; he has one goal, two points and 11 minutes.

Red Wings reach two-year deal with Brendan Smith

Tuesday, 07.16.2013 / 4:54 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

The Detroit Red Wings on Tuesday announced that they have agreed to terms with restricted free-agent defenseman Brendan Smith on a two-year contract, avoiding a salary arbitration hearing. TSN first reported the deal last week, placing its value at $2.525 million, with Smith earning $1.25 million in 2013-14 and $1.275 million in 2014-15.

Smith, 24, had eight points in 34 regular-season games last season while averaging 18:24 of ice time per game. In the Stanley Cup Playoffs, he led the team's defensemen with two goals and five points in 14 games. One of his two goals was the winner in Game 2 of the Western Conference Semifinals against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Smith was the Red Wings' first pick (No. 27) in the 2007 NHL Draft. He made his NHL debut in 2011-12, and in parts of two seasons, has one goal and 15 points in 48 games.

Ference comes full circle with Oilers

Tuesday, 07.16.2013 / 4:30 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

Andrew Ference has gone from a youngster watching the Edmonton Oilers win Stanley Cups to an NHL veteran trying to bring another title to the team he grew up watching.

The 34-year-old defenseman signed with the Oilers as a free agent July 5, and made his first visit to Edmonton as a member of the team he grew up watching Tuesday when he met young players and signed autographs during the Oilers Hockey School.

Two decades earlier, Ference was like those kids seeking autographs -- he mowed Oilers forward Petr Klima's lawn in exchange for being able to visit team practices.

Lightning sign Barberio to one-year, two-way deal

Tuesday, 07.16.2013 / 4:06 PM / NHL Free Agency 2013

The Tampa Bay Lightning on Monday announced the re-signing of 23-year-old defenseman Mark Barberio to a one-year, two-way contract. Financial terms of the deal were not released.

Barberio played two games with the Lightning in 2012-13, recording one shot on goal. The blueliner spent most of 2012-13 with the Syracuse Crunch, the Lightning's American Hockey League affiliate, where he had eight goals and 42 points in 73 games.

In the 2012-13 Calder Cup Playoffs, the 6-foot-1, 185-pounder had three goals and 15 points in 18 games, and led all defenseman in postseason points.

Originally drafted by Tampa Bay in the sixth round (No. 152) of the 2008 NHL Draft, Barberio helped the Norfolk Admirals -- then the Lighting's affiliate -- win the Calder Cup in 2012, and Barberio was named the winner of the Eddie Shore Award, given to the best defenseman in the AHL.
