Sorry about the lack of updates, Blogger has been acting up lately and I haven't been able to log in.
The Minnesota Wild have signed Petr Sykora to a one-year, $1.6 million contract. Sykora was invited to attend the Wild's training camp.
The Columbus Blue Jackets have re-signed forward Antoine Vermette to a 5-year, $18.75 million contract extension.
The Montreal Canadiens have signed forward Phillipe Lefebvre to a contract.
The Dallas Stars have signed goalie Tyler Beskorowany to an entry-level contract.
The Buffalo Sabres have signed forward Tyler Ennis to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The New Jersey Devils have signed defenseman Alexander Urbom to a three-year, entry-level contract.
The Atlanta Thrashers have invited forward Maxim Afinogenov to their training camp. Brochu's take: I really don't understand why other NHL teams didn't at least invite him to training camp. It's clear that Afinogenov needed a fresh start, and I think it's possible he can return to his 60-70 point self.
Look for my European rumor update later tomorrow!
