COLUMBUS -- It wasn't all sand, sun and fun for Brandon Saad on his vacation this week while he got over the shock of being traded by the Chicago Blackhawks and awaited word on a contract from the Columbus Blue Jackets.

But Saad started the holiday weekend by signing a six-year contract with Columbus reportedly worth $36 million.

"It's nice to be on the beach and in the sun," Saad said from Myrtle Beach, S.C. "At the same time, it's always in your mind you want to get things done and be on the team and excited to go, so that's been a little stressful."

Longtime Detroit Red Wings defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame earlier this week. Two of his sons, Adam and Kevin, would like to follow in his footsteps.

Each is taking part in the Red Wings' developmental camp this weekend.

Adam Lidstrom, 19, is a forward who played junior hockey for Vasteras last season, finishing with seven goals and 14 points in 40 games. Kevin Lidstrom, 21, is a defenseman who had one assist in 22 games for Enkopings of the third-tier Hockeyettan.

O'Reilly signs seven-year extension with Sabres

Friday, 07.03.2015 / 5:09 PM / News

The Buffalo Sabres signed forward Ryan O'Reilly to a seven-year contract extension on Friday.

O'Reilly, 24, who was traded from the Colorado Avalanche on June 26, had 17 goals and 55 points in 82 games last season and had one year remaining on his contract.

"We're happy to have Ryan locked up to a long-term deal," Buffalo general manager Tim Murray said. "It's not easy to find a player who, at his age, is already established in the League as someone who plays a complete game and makes his teammates better. When we acquired him, we viewed him as someone who could immediately improve our roster but was still young enough to make an impact for several years to come, and this contract reflects that belief."

EDMONTON -- Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid signed his first professional contract Friday, then stepped on the ice to a round of applause at Rexall Place.

Approximately 3,000 fans got their first glimpse of McDavid on the ice when the Oilers opened the third day of development camp to the public.

Prior to the practice session, the Oilers announced they agreed to terms with McDavid, 18, on a three-year, entry-level contract. He could earn as much as $3.775 million per season if he reaches all available bonuses, according to TSN.

"It's very special, obviously; there is draft day and then there's the day that you sign your first deal," McDavid said. "It's been a crazy couple of weeks and I'm very honored to be able to do that."

CHICAGO -- Andrew Desjardins could've gotten a bigger raise by leaving the Chicago Blackhawks as an unrestricted free agent. What he couldn't have gotten is the familiarity and comfort he has with the Blackhawks.

Rather than leaving for more money elsewhere, Desjardins on Friday agreed to terms on a two-year contract worth $1.6 million to stay with the Stanley Cup champions.

"Obviously, the key thing is we loved it there, [my] entire family," said Desjardins, who had one goal and three assists in 21 games during the Stanley Cup Playoffs. "It came down to just that, how much we enjoyed the city [and] how much we enjoyed the organization. It was a great experience. That made it an easy decision for us."

"It's great to get [the contract] out of the way," Allen said. "I couldn't be more excited to have two more years in St. Louis. It finally feels like home to me now.

Friday, 07.03.2015 / 3:51 PM / NHL Insider

Kyle Palmieri played for the New Jersey Devils' youth team and attended Devils practices and games when he was a boy.

Now, the 24-year old will get to play for the Devils; he was traded from the Anaheim Ducks for two draft picks on June 26.

Palmieri was born Smithtown, N.Y., but grew up in Montvale, N.J., rooting for the New York Rangers.

"I probably went to more Devils games than I did Rangers games just because it was easier to get tickets and for me it was way easier to get to (the Meadowlands) than it was for me to get into the city," Palmieri told on Thursday. "I definitely grew up going to more Devils games than I did Rangers games."
