The trade deadline may have passed, but the opportunity to improve one's team still exists in the form of unsigned NCAA players finishing their collegiate careers and European players.

First up, the Canucks signed F Drew Shore. Formerly a promising prospect in Florida, the 26-year-old spent this season in the Swiss League, where he went ~PPG.

The big college names are Northeastern LW Zach Aston-Reese and Union C Mike Vecchione.

Some names from Friedman: http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/30-t ... -decision/

St. Lawrence offensive dman Gavin Bayreuther. Dallas the most aggressive suitor.
Diminutive UNH forward Tyler Kelleher. Likely NJ bound.

Aston-Reese suitors: Pittsburgh, Edmonton, Vancouver, Anaheim and San Jose

Two Russian defencemen also looking to jump over: Alexei Bereglazov and Viktor Antipin

Pens sign UMass-Lowell D Dylan Zink.

Preds avoid losing another Harvard draft pick by signing 6th rounder Tyler Moy.

The big UFA fish this offseason might be a pair of KHL forwards: Vadim Shipachyov and Evgeni Dadonov.

Quote:
Mentioned a few weeks ago that Las Vegas was checking out KHLers Evgeny Dadonov and Vadim Shipachyov. Haven’t spoken to the Golden Knights, but word is both free agents come with big asks. The first request should always be high, but it gives you an idea of where talks are expected to go. Shipachyov is believed to be looking for around $5.5 million per season, and Dadonov $3.5 million. Will be curious to see if any NHL team steps up at those numbers — and we haven’t even discussed term.

Habs win the Jakub Jerabek sweepstakes. Bobby Mac said there was a lot of interest in the 25-year-old KHL defenceman.

From Czechya (did I say that right?), he's small (5'10, 180) but sturdy and can generate offensive with a good first pass.

Also, the Pens signed NE grad Zach Aston-Reese and he lit up the AHL, getting 8 points in 10 games. I think we'll be hearing about him sooner rather than later.

Vadim Shipachyov, who has his sights set on the NHL, will not be a Montreal Canadien. He's fielding some big offers, Habs looking elsewhere.


The big rumour going around is Ship and Kovalchuk to FLA.

EDIT: Ship to LV

Nashville land undrafted Swedish forward Victor Ejdsell. Lots of interest in the 6'4, 214 centre, who racked up points in Sweden's B league last season.

"The @MapleLeafs announced today they have signed free agents Calle Rosén & Andreas Borgman to two-year entry level contracts #TMLtalk"

Couple of young D-men to add to the organization depth and hopefully develop into NHL'ers.
