-Happy 25th birthday to former Penguins defenseman Philip Samuelsson. The son of former Penguins defenseman Ulf Samuelsson, Philip Samuelsson was a second-round pick in 2009. His Penguins career amounted to five games and no points in 2013-14. During 2014-15, he was traded to the Coyotes in exchange for left winger Rob Klinkhammer and a draft pick.

Neapolitan Ice Cream Metropolitan Division

-The Flyers re-signed restricted free agent forward Brayden Schenn to a four-year contract worth a total of $20.5 million. Coming off a contract with a salary cap hit of $2.5 million, Schenn's new deal will have a cap hit of $5.125 million. Schenn, 24, appeared in 80 games last season and scored 59 points (26 goals, 33 assists).

-EN Says: Schenn had some great timing as he broke through with a career season in 2015-16. In addition to his production, Schenn is an annoying and persistent shutdown center who finds ways to get under the skin of opposing centers. Capable of playing all forward positions, he's a pretty complete player. ]

-The Red Wings and restricted free agent Petr Mrazek are far apart on contract negotiations as arbitration approaches.

-The Lightning re-signed restricted free agent forward Yanni Gourde to a one-year two-way contract.
