The Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday signed goaltender Oscar Dansk to a three-year entry-level contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Dansk, 20, was a second-round pick (No. 31) by the Blue Jackets in the 2012 NHL Draft.

Dansk, a native of Tumba, Sweden, has spent the past two seasons with the Erie Otters of the Ontario Hockey League, compiling a 40-32-7 record with a 3.25 goals-against average, .897 save percentage and six shutouts in 85 appearances.

Flyers promote Holmgren to president, Hextall to GM

Wednesday, 05.07.2014 / 1:00 PM / News

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

Ron Hextall called Wednesday the culmination of a 15-year dream.

Hextall on Wednesday was promoted to general manager of the Philadelphia Flyers, replacing Paul Holmgren, who was named president of the team in a sweeping change to the front office.

After playing 11 of 13 NHL seasons with the Flyers, Hextall moved into a scouting role with the organization after he retired in 1999. He returned to Flyers in the summer of 2013 as assistant general manager and director of hockey operations after seven seasons as assistant general manager with the Los Angeles Kings.

"When [chairman Ed] Snider brought me in and talked about offering me this job, not only did I reach my goal of being a general manager, I got my dream job," Hextall said during a press conference at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. "I'm thrilled to be sitting here and I'll do the best job I can do. I'll work hard toward reaching the ultimate goal of bringing the Stanley Cup back to Philadelphia."

Predators expect Laviolette to improve offense

Tuesday, 05.06.2014 / 6:35 PM / News

John Manasso - NHL.com Correspondent

The idea of hiring Peter Laviolette as the Nashville Predators' second coach seemed like a natural fit to general manager David Poile.

The two worked together for the United States at the 2014 Sochi Olympics with Poile as general manager and Laviolette as an assistant coach. Poile was impressed with Laviolette's preparation and game plans and liked Laviolette's experience and motivational abilities.

Yet Poile wanted to do his homework. It was 17 years since he hired a coach and he wanted to get it right. So Poile spoke with some who played for Laviolette with the Carolina Hurricanes, who he coached to the 2006 Stanley Cup, and the Philadelphia Flyers, who he brought to the 2010 Cup Final. Poile spoke to Predators center Matt Cullen, who won the Cup with Laviolette in Carolina.

Poile might have ended his search where he started. The Predators announced Laviolette on Tuesday as the successor to Barry Trotz, who coached the team for its first 15 seasons. Poile, the third-longest tenured general manager in the NHL, said his confidence in the hire was about as high as any decision he had ever made.

"Peter is a very successful coach," Poile said. "Am I glad that we have that an experienced coach who won a Stanley Cup? Yes, sir. That's good. All of the criteria is great. Again, I think I knew all that but I wanted to check it out with other people, other players. Again, I just did my due diligence. This is arguably the most important decision we're making this offseason."
