The Boston Bruins have re-signed impending restricted free agent forward David Krejci to a three-year, $11.25 million contract. The contract is worth $3.5, $3.75 and $4 million per year, respectively. Brochu's take: Great signing by GM Peter Chiarelli. Krejci is capable of scoring at a point-a-game pace and has great playmaking skills.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed forward Mikhail Stefanovich, defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and defenseman Juraj Mikus to entry-level contracts. Stefanovich, 19, was the Leafs’ 3rd round choice, selected 98th overall in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft. Gunnarsson was the 6th round choice in the 2007 Draft, and Mikus was the Leafs' 5th round pick in 2007. Brochu's take: Burkie continues to add depth to the organization, and expect him to be a big player at the Draft and free agency.
The Dallas Stars have signed goalies Matt Climie and Brent Krahn to one-year, two-way contracts for the 2009-2010 NHL season.
