COLUMBUS-- The Columbus Blue Jackets development camp June 29 to July 2 featured many top prospects from recent NHL drafts.

Oliver Bjorkstrand, a third-round pick in 2013 NHL Draft and the Western Hockey League's player of the year in 2015, was at the practice facility at Nationwide Arena. So were 2015 first-round selection defenseman Zach Werenski from the University of Michigan and 2014 first-rounder forward Sonny Milano.

But two undrafted invitees attracted the most media attention.

COLUMBUS -- There are many changes between the Sonny Milano who attended his first Columbus Blue Jackets development camp a year ago after being selected 16th in the 2014 NHL Draft to the Milano who showed for his second go-around June 29 to July 2.

There weren't the persistent questions about his immediate future; whether he would fulfill his commitment to attend Boston College or play in the Ontario Hockey League.

Milano gave his answer several weeks later when he opted to play in the OHL for the Plymouth Whalers. Milano led Plymouth in scoring with 68 points, including 22 goals, in 50 games despite missing more than a month at the start of the season because of facial fractures sustained at the NHL Prospects Tournament in Traverse City, Mich., in September.

Prust was 'in shock' after trade to Canucks: report

Friday, 07.03.2015 / 8:23 PM / News

Forward Brandon Prust was vacationing with his fiancée in Rome this week when he got the news he was traded to the Vancouver Canucks by the Montreal Canadiens.

"Funny, I saw the headline [July 1 on Twitter], 'Zack Kassian traded to the Canadiens from the Canucks,' but I didn't see at first who he was traded for," Prust told the Montreal Gazette on Friday from his offseason home in London, Ontario.

Shortly after, Prust received a call from Montreal general manager Marc Bergevin, telling him he'd been traded to Vancouver for Kassian and a fifth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

"[My fiancée] had been putting her makeup on for dinner and now she's bawling her eyes out, and I'm lying there in shock," Prust said. "I had 100 text messages on my phone within 10 minutes. It was very overwhelming."

He won 237-of-472 faceoff attempts, good for a 50.2 win percentage.

Free agent forward Joel Ward signed a three-year contract with the San Jose Sharks on Friday.

"Originally when the season ended, my first thought was to maybe head back [to the Washington Capitals]," Ward said, "and just kind of more and more into the summer and free agency period, it just seemed unlikely.

"So I knew that was a possibility, and when I got a chance to talk to [Sharks coach Peter [DeBoer], that really helped me sway of being in a good situation."

The Capitals signed forward Justin Williams on Wednesday and traded for forward T.J. Oshie on Thursday, making Ward expendable.

His contract is worth $9.75 million, an average annual value of $3.25 million, according to Sportsnet.

"It was a group that wanted me and it's always good to feel loved," Ward said. "I embraced it, I loved it, and I thought it was a great opportunity."

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."

Lidstrom's sons attend Red Wings development camp

Friday, 07.03.2015 / 6:05 PM / NHL Insider

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."
