Maple Leafs sign winger Nikita Gusev to professional tryout

The Toronto Maple Leafs have signed Russian winger Nikita Gusev to a professional tryout contract. CapFriendly was first to report the news Friday night. Gusev has had quite the journey around the NHL despite playing in only 97 career games over the past two seasons. Originally a seventh-round draft selection in 2012 by the Tampa Bay Lightning, Gusev was dealt to the Vegas Golden Knights in 2017 for expansion draft considerations. Gusev signed his entry-level contract with Vegas during the 2019 Stanley Cup Playoffs, but never suited up for the franchise. His signing rights were dealt to the New Jersey Devils just months later in exchange for draft picks, where the former KHL All-Star and Gagarin Cup Champion then suited up for his rookie season. Things went well for Gusev in 2019-20, scoring 44 points in 66 games, but he fell out of favor with the coaching staff this year and saw his contract mutually terminated. After clearing waivers, Gusev signed a deal with the Florida Panthers for the remainder of the season. He performed decently with Florida down the stretch, scoring five points in 11 games, but he didn’t make a playoff appearance.

Nikita Gusev invited to Maple Leafs camp on a PTO

The Maple Leafs have invited Nikita Gusev to training camp on a Professional Tryout Agreement, CapFriendly is reporting. It was a rollercoaster 2020-21 for Gusev in which he went through Covid protocol in February, spent a few weeks on the sidelines, and needed to get his conditioning back up to par before returning to the lineup with a bang (three points in his first three games). At the time of his return from Covid, Gusev had played just nine games in 11 months due to the shutdown of the 2020-21 season (the Devils were out of the playoff tournament) and a delayed start to 2021-22.

Canucks Aligning Their Stars with Pettersson & Hughes

Halfway through September isn’t where the Vancouver Canucks fans want to be thinking about contracts. They’ve had more than enough of that in recent years, with stars cutting their current deals quite late. Scoring leader Brock Boeser‘s bridge deal remained unsigned until the end of training camp two years ago. Captain Horvat’s contract was signed just a few days before camp opened. The two Canucks waiting this year — Elias Pettersson and Quinn Hughes — r could mean even more to the team.

A deep dive into the Seattle Kraken's salary-cap situation

Navigating the salary cap is one of the more important tasks for any GM. Teams that can avoid total cap chaos by walking the tightrope of inking players to deals that match their value (or compensate for future value without breaking the bank) remain successful.

Should the New Jersey Devils be Looking at Any Other Players for PTOs/Contracts?

A large portion of the New Jersey Devils roster is seemingly determined for the upcoming 2021-22 season. Players who have been tenured on the NHL club for a while, as well as their shiny new free agent signings will make up the core for the coming season, but as we have discussed in prior articles leading up to this point, there’s still a couple of slots left. Some feel that internal fills (such as Jesper Boqvist) are the best way to go, while others feel perhaps some of the PTOs that the team offered a couple of days ago might serve the group better.

The Noon Countdown: Youth Will (Not) Be Served

27 - Number of days remaining until the start of the Capitals’ 2021-22 season. But it’s also... ... the age of both Tom Wilson and Anthony Mantha (who turns 27 today - happy birthday!), two of the three rostered Caps skaters under the age of 29 (Daniel Sprong, 24, is the other). Per CapFriendly, the Caps are the oldest team in the League at an average age of 29.9, led in more ways than one by their 35-year-old captain (who turns 36 tomorrow).

Sabres Could End Up Below Cap Floor With Eichel Deal

For some months, reports led us to believe that the Buffalo Sabres could trade Jack Eichel at any moment. More recently, there have been stretches when it seems like the deal was far from happening. His health and viability for this coming season has often come up as a deterrent for prospective suitors. The situation with his needed surgery has also brought on discussions in some circles that changes need to be made between the NHL and the player’s association around who gets the final say on medical procedures. The two sides have stepped into the fray of the issue. For Sabres fans, it’s been a roller coaster of emotion.

Sharks News & Rumors: Hertl, Kane, Sorensen & More

In this edition of San Jose Sharks News & Rumors, general manager Doug Wilson said that despite the recent trade rumors surrounding Tomas Hertl, he hopes to keep him in the organization long-term. The investigation into Evander Kane has been slowed down, making it unclear if a decision will be made before training camp. Meanwhile, it is now confirmed that Marcus Sorensen will not return to the Sharks next season. He signed a deal with Djugardens IF of the Swedish Hockey League (SHL). There were also a few other contracts issues last week, including Noah Gregor, who re-signed, and Vladislav Kotkov whose contract was terminated.

Rieder, 28, now has 478 regular season NHL games under his belt after playing 44 with the Buffalo Sabres this year.
