Free Agency: Tuesday's signings
- The Anaheim Ducks announced the signing of center Andrew Cogliano to a three-year deal. Cogliano, who was acquired from Edmonton for a second-round draft pick in 2013 on July 12, had 35 points (11-24) and 64 penalty minutes this past season. He has not missed a game since making his NHL debut in the 2007-08 season.
- The Philadelphia Flyers signed goalie Jason Bacashihua to a one-year contract, center Jon Kalinski to a one-year extension and center Marcel Noebels to an entry-level deal.
- The Phoenix Coyotes signed forwards Brett MacLean, Kyle Chipchura, Marc-Antoine Pouliot and Mathieu Beaudoin each to a one-year, two-way contract.
- The San Jose Sharks signed unrestricted free agent Andrew Murray to a one-year contract. The 29-year-old center had eight points in 29 games with Columbus this past season but missed 31 games with injuries.
- The Tampa Bay Lightning signed All-Star center Steven Stamkos to a five-year, $37.5 million contract. Stamkos will earn $8 million in each of the first four seasons and $5.5 million in the final year, a source told ESPN.com's Scott Burnside, and will account for a $7.5 million salary cap hit annually.
- The Toronto Maple Leafs signed Joey Crabb to a one-year deal. Crabb split his time between the Leafs and the AHL's Toronto Marlies this past season, registering a career-high three points against the Bruins on March 19.
- The Winnipeg Jets agreed to terms with forward Jason Jaffray. The 30-year-old played with the AHL's Manitoba Moose this past season, but missed most of the year with an injury. On Monday, the Jets agreed to terms with right wing Blake Wheeler, Brett Festerling, Riley Holzapfel, Arturs Kulda, Spencer Machacek, Ben Maxwell and Kenndal McArdle.
