  • Jared Davidson signed his entry-level contract. The rough-and-tumble forward was used sparingly by the Laval Rocket during his rookie campaign, but picked up momentum as the season unfolded, scoring 11 goals and five assists in 38 games. The deal is set to expire in 2026.

  • The Florida Panthers are a win away from making a trip to the Stanley Cup Final for the second straight year. Just don’t tell anyone in the locker room that. They do not want to hear it. After a 3-2 win in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final gave them a 3-2 led in the Eastern Conference final, the Panthers are not focused on the Final. They’re focused on taking down the New York Rangers in Game 6 on Saturday night in Sunrise. [Florida Panthers]
  • The New Jersey Devils have addressed one of their top priorities this offseason, finally naming a head coach. Next, they’ll look to address their next most important need, most likely via a trade. [New Jersey Devils]
  • For those who don’t know of or anything about top 2024 prospect Carter Yakemchuk, he’s a 6-foot-3 right-shot defenseman who just led all WHL defensemen in goals with 30. The 18-year-old was second in goals on his team, the Calgary Hitmen, and also finished second in assists (41) and points (71).[Philadelphia Flyers]
