Chris Patrick has actually been promoted to associate basic supervisor.
Dick Patrick was called chairman of the Capitals.
The Oilers indication 2 to PTOs
Edmonton Oilers: The Oilers have actually signed forwards Sam Gagner and Brandon Sutter to PTOs.
Daniel Nugent-Bowman: “I like PTOs for Brandon Sutter and Sam Gagner for the Oilers. Sutter will be in tough to make the team after all the time away but could be a reasonable 4C option if camp goes well. Gagner is beloved in that room and could take the D. Shore role. (Jackson was his former agent.)”
Jim Matheson: “Good stuff that Sam Gagner is taking PTO here. Clearly hasn’t lost desire to keep playing after hip surgeries. Still see a player development role here down road for Sam but he will battle fellow PTO Brandon Sutter for 4th line spot”
The Avs indication Joel Kiviranta to a PTO
Cap Friendly: The Colorado Avalanche have actually signed forward Joel Kiviranta to a PTO.
Peter Baugh: ” He had 9 points in 70 video games for Dallas in 2015 and brings another choice to the forward group. If you might remember, Kiviranta as soon as had a Game 7 hat technique in a playoff series.”

The Red Wings indication Cameron Hillis to a PTO
