-       Kovalchuk flew back to Russia and multiple reports suggesting the winger is contacting KHL teams about possible signing

-       Raffi Torres will compete for a top-6 forward spot, but most likely slotted in to play a physical game on the third grinding line. He signed 1-year, $1 million dollar deal.

-       Bill Guerin is told by the Penguins that they do not intend on bringing him back, Guerin is disappointed to hear this news.
