-Happy 66th birthday to former Penguins goaltender and former goaltending coach Gilles Meloche. Acquired in the 1985 offseason in a deal which sent defensemen Marty McSorley, Craig Muni and left winger Tim Hrynewich to the Oilers, Meloche spent the final three seasons of his 18-year NHL playing career with the Penguins. Platooning with goaltender Roberto Romano in 1985-86, Meloche appeared in 34 games and had a record of 13-15-5 with a 3.59 goals against average and .881 save percentage. In 1986-87, Meloche took over as the team's primary starter as he saw action in 43 games. He had a record of 13-19-7 with a 3.43 goals against average and .881 save percentage. His final season in the NHL was 1987-88 as he only appeared in 27 games and compiled an 8-9-5 record with a 4.09 goals against average and .868 save percentage. He retired in the 1988 offseason having appeared in 104 games for the Penguins with a record of 34-43-17, a 3.65 goals against average and .878 save percentage. Meloche rejoined the organization in 1989 with a front office role and eventually moved into a position as goaltending coach. He is currently a scout with the team. A member of all four of the franchise's Stanley Cup championship teams, Meloche is the father of former Penguins right winger Eric Meloche.

-The Coyotes re-signed unrestricted free agent captain/forward Shane Doan to a one-year contract. Exact financial terms have not been reported. Coming off a contract with a salary cap hit of $5.3 million, Doan, 39, appeared in 72 games last season and scored 47 points (28 goals, 19 assists) last season. Doan has spent his entire 20-season career with the Coyotes/Jets franchise.
-EN Says: Few players are more identifiable with one franchise than Doan is with the Coyotes. He rediscoved his scoring touch a little bit by nearly hitting the 30-goal mark. It's hard to see him hitting 28 goals again but he's still a viable top-six winger and is a good presence to have around a mostly younger roster.
-The Ducks re-signed unrestricted free agent defenseman Korbinian Holzer to a one-year contract worth $700,000. Coming off a one-year contract with a salary cap hit of $750,000, Holzer, 28, appeared in 29 games last season and recorded three assists.
