-Defenseman Brian Dumoulin is scheduled to celebrate his day with the Stanley Cup Aug. 3 in Biddeford, Maine.

-The Penguins will hold their development camp beginning today. The players scheduled to participate:

Forwards: Anthony Angello, Teddy Blueger, Blaine Byron, Reid Gardner, Jake Guentzel, Cameron Hebig, Christian Hilbrich, Troy Josephs, Tyler Kelleher, Conor Lemirande, Austin Lemieux, James McEwan, Austin Ortega, Nikita Pavlychev, Gage Quinney, Freddie Tiffels, C.J. Yakimowicz.

-The Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins sighed Hilbrich, formerly of Cornell, to an AHL contract.

Neapolitan Ice Cream Metropolitan Division

-The Hurricanes re-signed forward Patrick Brown, a pending restricted free agent, to a one-year, two-way contract.

Atlantic Division

-The Lightning re-signed forward Tye McGinn and defenseman Matt Taormina, each pending restricted free agents, to one-year, two-way contracts.

-The Maple Leafs did not extend qualifying offers to pending restricted free agent forwards Sam Carrick, Colin Smith and defenseman Stuart Percy

Central Division

-The Blues re-signed forward Kyle Brodziak (right), a pending unrestricted free agent, to a two-year contract worth a total of $1.9 million. Coming off a contract with a salary cap hit of $900,000, Brodziak's new deal will have a cap hit of $950,000. Brodziak, 32, appeared in 76 games last season and scored 11 points (seven goals, four assists). 

-EN Says: Brodziak turned what was essentially a tryout last offseason into a little bit of security in the form of a two-year contract. Brodziak is a steady, bottom-six center who fits in well with how head coach Ken Hitchcock likes to play.

-The Blues did not extend qualifying offers to pending restricted free agent forwards Yannick Veilleux, Ryan Tesink and Cody Beach.

Pacific Division

-The Canucks were fined $50,000 for tampering after general manager Jim Benning made comments regarding players under contract to other teams.
