Not every transaction can be of the Tuukka Rask tying Pekka Rinne atop the “highest cap hits for NHL goalies” variety. Here are some of the smaller moves from Wednesday:

  • The San Jose Sharks signed/re-signed four players. Most notably, they locked up probable backup netminder Alex Stalock to a one-year deal and brought back defenseman Rob Davison (whose last name just begs for a d). The team also inked Matt Pelech and Adam Comrie to one-year pacts. Fear the Fin explains why the Davison transaction is a little surprising for Sharks fans.
  • The Carolina Hurricanes signed defensemen Matt Corrente and Mark Flood to one-year, two-way deals. Both are worth the minimum at the NHL level ($550K) while Flood will get $175K in the AHL and Corrente is guaranteed at least $105K.
  • The Ottawa Senators inked David Dziurzynski to a one-year, two-way deal as well. Dziurzynski likely caused many typos during his 12 regular season games in the NHL in 2013.
  • If you’re tired of one-year deals, the Montreal Canadiens mixed things up with a two-year, two-way contract for Gabriel Dumont.

    Man, Ottawa is really dedicated to winning that new “Most Incomprehensible Names” award. Zibanejad, Borowiecki, Dziurzynski, Wiercioch… and that’s just actual roster guys. They can call up men with names known only to dread Cthulhu if they need to.
