Sorry about the delay, there will be another post later today focused on the KHL (Russian) rumors that have been around lately.
The Minnesota Wild have traded defenseman Shawn Belle to the Montreal Canadiens for forward Corey Locke.
The Wild have also signed forward Krys Kolanos to a contract.
The Anaheim Ducks have signed defenseman Brennan Evans to a two-year contract and defenseman Steve Montador to a one-year contract.
According to RDS.ca, the Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed Vincent Lecavalier to a 11 year, $85M contract extension.
The Bolts also announced the resignation of executive vice president and general manager Jay Feaster. He has come to terms with the owners, as Feaster had 3 years left on his contract. Brochu's take: Everyone saw this coming when most of the deals were announced by Koules, Barrie or Lawton. It won't take him long to find a job though, as he is well respected member in the old boys club.
The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed forward Chris Gratton to a one-year contract.
The Ottawa Senators have signed goaltender Mitchell O'Keefe and defenseman Brendan Bell to one-year contracts.
The Vancouver Canucks have signed forward Jason Krog to a one-year deal.
The Washington Capitals have signed RFA forward Boyd Gordon to a one-year contract.
The St. Louis Blues have signed defenseman Andy Wozniewski to a contract.
