The Penguins announce they have signed defenseman Marcus Petterson to a five-year extension.

Sportsnet, passing along a report from Finland’s Iltalehti, says that Ilya Kovalchuk may be plotting a return to the NHL in 2016-17.

Because he ‘retired’ from the NHL to get out of his 15 year contract with the Devils, Kovalchuk would need the permission of all 30 NHL teams to return to the league prior to the 2018-19 season.

Kovalchuk will turn 32 next month.

Sabres Could Move Additional 2015 1st Round Pick

Louis Jean of TVA Sports reports that Sabres’ GM Tim Murray has told other GMs that the Sabres might trade their remaining 1st round pick that isn’t their own.

The Sabres originally had three 2015 first round picks — their own, the Islanders’ (acquired in the Thomas Vanek trade), and the Blues’ (acquired in the Ryan Miller trade). The lowest of those picks was moved in the Evander Kane trade earlier this season.

Canucks Sign College D-Man Ben Hutton

The Vancouver Canucks have signed college defenseman Ben Hutton to an entry level contract. Hutton was a Canucks’ 5th round pick in 2012.

In three seasons with Maine, the 21 year old defenseman has played 108 games, recording 28 goals and 37 assists.

Damien Cox reports that after trade talks with the Wings about Dion Phaneuf fell apart, at least two other teams showed interest in the Leafs’ captain.

There’s widespread belief the Leafs could have done a deal with Detroit involving Dion Phaneuf at the deadline, but backed off, thinking a better trade option might emerge over the coming months. At least two other teams have since approached Toronto about a Phaneuf trade.

Phaneuf is owed $49.5 million over the next six seasons with a cap hit of $7 million.

The Calgary Flames have announced that defenseman Douglas Murray will practice with the team on a try-out basis.

Murray, 35, played in the NHL most recently last season with the Canadiens. It is highly suspect that he could help an NHL team at this point of his career.
