Penner signs four-year deal with Oilers: The Oilers have signed forward Dustin Penner to a four-year contract worth $21 million. Penner was one of the most sought-after forwards on the market and his signing is a major coup for the Oilers. He gives them much-needed size and scoring punch up front and should be a nice complement to young forwards Taylor Hall and Ryan Nugent-Hopkins.
Whitney signs two-year deal with Stars: The Stars have signed veteran forward Ray Whitney to a two-year contract worth $9 million. Whitney is coming off a very productive season with the Phoenix Coyotes, posting 77 points in 80 games. At 42 years old, he’s not quite the player he once was, but he can still put up points and will be a nice addition to the Stars’ offense.
Jagr signs one-year deal with Devils: The Devils have signed Future Hall of Famer Jaromir Jagr to a one-year contract worth $4 million. Jagr had an excellent season with the Dallas Stars last year, tallying 59 points in 73 games. He’s still an elite offensive player at age 41 and should provide a nice boost to the Devils’ attack.
