Empty Netter Assists - Kessel and the Cup - 07-18-16

Written by Seth Rorabaugh on .

Penguins

-It's right winger Phil Kessel's turn with the Stanley Cup:

-Happy 73rd birthday to former Penguins defenseman Don Awrey. Acquired prior to the 1976 offseason in a trade which sent a draft pick to the Canadiens, Awrey (AKA "Elbows") spent one season - 1976-77 - with the Penguins. In 79 games, he scored 13 points. Unsigned the following offseason, his signing rights were traded to the Capitals prior to the 1977-78 season in exchange for defenseman Bob Paradise.

Atlantic Division

-The Lightning re-signed restricted free agent forward Alex Killorn to a seven-year contract worth a total of $31.15 million. Coming off a contract with a salary cap hit of $2.5 million, Killorn's new deal will have a cap hit of $4.45 million. Killorn, 26, appeared in 81 games last season and scored 40 points (14 goals, 26 assists). 

-EN Says: Killorn is a pretty versatile player who can play multiple positions and various lines. He's been a significant part of this team's success the last handful of seasons and has been pretty consistent. This contract is fitting for a player of his caliber.

-"That’s obviously my No. 1 goal. I love Ottawa, I love the fans there. We’re a great team, great guys, so that’s obviously my first priority, to try to get something done with them.” - Senators forward Mike Hoffman on his status as a restricted free agent.

-The Sabres re-signed restricted free agent goaltender Jason Kasdorf to a two-year two-way contract.

Central Division

-New Predators defenseman P.K. Subban finally hit up Nashville.

Smythe Division

-Former Coyotes/Blackhawks forward Viktor Tikhonov has joined SKA St. Petersburg in Russia's KHL.

-Former Sharks defenseman Mike Moore has joined the Fischtown Pinguins of Germany's DEL.
