In addition to the Florida Panthers signing first-round pick Owen Tippett to a three-year, entry-level contract, there were some other signings around the NHL on Wednesday.

Nashville’s Pontus Aberg signed on for two more years with the Predators. His cap hit will be $650K per season.

The Colorado Avalanche came to terms with three players, re-signing forwards Gabriel Bourque and Felix Girard, as well as defenseman Duncan Siemens to one-year, two-way contracts.

Forward Martin “I wanna buy a vowel” Frk remained with the Detroit Red Wings, signing a one-year, two-way deal. Frk will be paid 650K at the NHL level and $250K in the minors.

The San Jose Sharks re-upped with left wing Marcus Sorenson, signing the Swede to a two-year contract.

I’ll leave you fine folks with a poll question for today.
