The Rangers signed Tony DeAngelo who finished 4th in scoring for defenseman to a two year deal with an AAV of $4.8 million. They also locked up goalie Alexandar Georgiev for two more season with an AAV of $2.425 million.

Mike Hoffman close to signing a one year deal

One big free agent scorer is out there and he is former Florida Panthers winger, Mike Hoffman. It was first rumored that he was holding out for a multi-year deal but now it sounds like he will accept a one year contract like Taylor Hall. I expect that team he’s considering to be the Nashville Predators.
