- CSNNE: Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli:
“I think right now we’re going to stand pat. I like the fact that we’re going to have competition on the third line. We have some good young players already in the organization that we just recently acquired,” said Chiarelli. “You never know what happens after the summer, but [off-season transactions] will slow down. It has slowed down [already].
“As of right now, we’re going to stand pat. Things may change, but that’s just where we are right now.”
- Craig Custance of ESPN: The next move for the Oilers may be to move winger Ales Hemsky. That deal could replace the asset in the draft pick (2nd round) they included in the David Perron-Magnus Paajarvi deal.
- Aaron Ward: The Panthers and 2nd overall pick Aleksander Barkov could announce a deal as early as today.
