NHL Trade Alert

The dogs days of summer continue. Although news has slowed quite a bit, the hold up with the second wave of free agents has given hockey fans everywhere something to talk about in the second week of July. Where will Derick Brassard go? Patrick Maroon? What about Ryan Dzingel and Dion Phaneuf? Some teams, like the San Jose Sharks and Boston Bruins, are still making news as well. More on that in a moment. Here are the top stories from around the hockey world on Tuesday, July 9th.

Don Sweeney made a little news on Monday when he announced six AHL contracts for the Providence Bruins. Among them was a two-year deal for Samuel Asselin. The QMJHL scoring star was rumored to have agreed to terms during the Stanley Cup Final. (Boston Hockey Now)

The Bruins also inked forward Peter Cehlarik to a one-year, two-way contract. He’ll have a chance to make the roster out of training camp in the fall. (Boston Hockey Now)

Veteran center Derick Brassard remains unsigned eight days into free agency. Among those interested? The Edmonton Oilers, who need a third line center. Brassard and the Oil seem like a pretty good fit for each other on paper. (The Oilers Rig)

The San Jose Sharks took care of some business on Monday, re-signing RFA Kevin Lebanc to a one-year deal. The pact caught the entire hockey world off guard, as Lebanc will earn a paltry $1 million next season. (NHL.com)

The Pittsburgh Penguins have already overhauled their forward group this summer. Should they follow suit with their defense? (Pittsburgh Hockey Now)
