Devils Daily: Devils Explored Dillon Trade; Celebrini Signs; Jets Stay Active

New Jersey Devils

Hopefully everyone has been enjoying their Fourth of July weekend after a hectic time in the NHL.

After beefing up their prospect pool in last week’s draft, and subsequently doing the same to the NHL roster via trade and free agency, the Devils don’t have too much left on their summer checklist.

We’ve heard from new Devils acquisitions over the past week, but one new nugget has come out in a recent interview with new defenseman Brenden Dillon.

Elsewhere around the league, top overall pick, Macklin Celebrini, has signed on the dotted line, and the Winnipeg Jets remain one of the more active teams this summer.

Let’s do that hockey.

Sportsnet: The Winnipeg Jets have continued to stay busy. They started the day by acquiring defenseman, Dylan Coghlan from the Carolina Hurricanes for future considerations. A solid depth defenseman for the Canes, Coghlan should have a heightened role on the Jets blueline after the departure of Brenden Dillon.

More Sportsnet: The Jets stayed active later in the day, locking up defenseman Logan Stanley to a two-year contract extension worth $1.25 million AAV.

San Jose Hockey Now: After slight deliberation about returning to Boston University, 2024 first-overall pick Macklin Celebrini has signed his first professional contract. The reigning Hobey Baker Award winner will now turn his attention to the NHL, and suit up for the Sharks on opening night.

Florida Hockey Now: The Stanley Cup champion Florida Panthers have made a bevy of low-cap hit signings to spur competition for roster spots. With a few key free agents still out there, they may look to add more as they attempt a repeat.

Detroit Hockey Now: After a breakout season, Red Wings 2018 first-round pick Joe Veleno filed for salary arbitration. After a career-high 12 goals, Veleno is seeking an upgrade from the $825,000 he made last season.
