Free Agent Signings for the Last Few Days

My last free agent post was at the beginning of the Labour Day weekend. Signings completely stopped over the long weekend. These signings have occurred over the last couple days.

Henrik Zetterberg resigned with Detroit. TSN's story is here. His importance to the Wings has gone up since it looks like Pavel Datsyuk may play in Russia.

The New York Islanders resigned Rick DiPietro. TSN's story is here. It's only a one year contract, much shorter than the reported fifteen year contract that was discussed earlier in his negotiation. They also signed Travis Brigley from Colorado. TSN's story is here. They hope he can provide some depth.

Toronto resigned Alexei Ponikarovsky. TSN's story is here.

Tampa Bay signed Todd Rohloff from Washington. TSN's story is here. They hope he can provide some defensive depth.

The New York Rangers signed Michal Rozsival from Pittsburgh. TSN's story is here. They hope he can provide some depth on defence. They also resigned Jed Ortmeyer and Craig Weller.

Los Angeles signed Anze Kopitar to an entry level contract. TSN's story is here.

These moves are signing the final restricted free agents and adding a few lower profile unrestricted free agents to fill out rosters. There probably are some gems still out there in the unrestricted free agent pile, but most won't make much of an impact this year.
