Pierre LeBrun: The NHL Player Safety is looking at the Oscar Sundqvist’s hit on Grzelcyk to determine if it warrants a hearing. Should find out if they feel it does or not.

Vilardi not skating yet

Jon Rosen: Los Angeles Kings prospect Gabriel Vilardi still isn’t back on the ice and they are still in a holding pattern and they are “awaiting clearance for training/skating protocol going forward.”

Boughner returning to San Jose

Kevin Kurz: Bob Boughner will replace Rob Zettler as an assistant coach with the San Jose Sharks.

Player signings

Edmonton Oilers: The Oilers have signed forward Joseph Gambardella to a two-year contract extension.

Jason Gregor: Gambardella’s contract is a two-way deal for both years.

Scott King: The Chicago Blackhawks have signed forward Dominik Kubalik to a one-year contract worth $925,000

Adam Vingan: The Nashville Predators have re-signed defenseman Jarred Tinordi to a two-year, two-way contract.

Senators re-sign Nilsson and have a goalie logjam

TSN 1200: The Ottawa Senators have signed goaltender Anders Nilsson to a two-year contract with an AAV of $2.6 million. He’ll get $2.8 million next season and $2.4 million in 2020-21.

Shawn Simpson: Next season the Senators have $9.8 million committed in net – Craig Anderson at $4 million, Mike Condon at $3 million and now Nilsson at $2.8 million.

Shawn Simpson: The Senators also have goaltenders Marcus Hogberg (RFA) and Filip Gustavsson, who will be in the AHL next year.

Shawn Simpson: The money given to Nilsson is a little surprising. Could Condon go on the LTIR or bought out?
