NHL signings

For the second day in a row the Calgary Flames were the team making roster moves. The Flames signed former Panthers defenseman Erik Gudbranson to a one-year deal worth $1.925 million. Gudbranson, 29, finished the 2020-21 season with the Nashville Predators after he was acquired from the Ottawa Senators on April 12 for a 7th round draft pick in 2023 and prospect defenseman Brandon Fortunato. Calgary also re-signed defenseman Michael Stone to a one-year contract worth league minimum of $750K. Stone, 31, produced two goals and two assists in 21 games with the Flames last season.
