VANCOUVER -- Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning was a scout with the Buffalo Sabres when they picked goaltender Ryan Miller in the fifth round of the 1999 NHL Draft.

Right before making Miller the 138th selection, Benning was asked to check with his agent, Mike Liut.

"I ran up to the stands, I asked Mike, 'Is this the time to take Ryan in the draft?' and Mike said 'Yep, this is Miller time,'" Benning said Tuesday.

Fifteen years later, it's Miller time again for Benning.

ST. PAUL, Minn. -- Two hours after agreeing to a three-year, $19.5 million contract, Thomas Vanek slipped on a Minnesota Wild jersey for the first time.

Vanek, who makes his home about 20 minutes east of Xcel Energy Center in Stillwater, Minn., chose to take less money, over fewer years, to stay home and reap all the benefits that has to offer.

"It's beyond my wildest dreams," Vanek said. "It's still hard to put into words."

PITTSBURGH -- The Pittsburgh Penguins look drastically different than they did when Tuesday began after an active first day of free agency that was highlighted by the signing of defenseman Christian Ehrhoff.

The Penguins signed Ehrhoff to a one-year contract worth $4 million shortly after free agency began at noon ET. The 31-year-old defenseman became a free agent when he was bought out of the final seven years of his 10-year, $40 million contract with the Buffalo Sabres.

"Once he was bought out, of course he was going to get a lot of attention," Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford said. "I made the call, like I'm sure several other teams did. I just made him aware that we were interested. … He loved the opportunity to come with the Penguins. He just felt let's give it one-year try with a good team with a chance to win."

Del Zotto, Conacher join unrestricted free agents

Tuesday, 07.01.2014 / 3:42 PM / NHL Free Agency 2014


There were a few extra players available Tuesday after some notable restricted free agents were not tendered a qualifying offer by his team. Those players became unrestricted free agents and do not require any compensation to sign a new contract.

The 24-year-old had three goals and 16 points in 67 games. He's had two strong offensive seasons in his five-year career but missed large parts of two because of injuries.
