Big names opted to re-sign before testing the NHL Free Agency

A quick recap as to who has re-signed for what clubs, rather than hitting the NHL Free Agency.


The NHL Free Agency opens up today, but a lot of the big names have already be been claimed. Top defenders by the likes of Keith Yandle and Alex Goligoski have found clubs, whilst this year’s UFA highlight, Steven Stamkos, has opted to stay at home in Tampa Bay.

So here’s a breakdown of all the deals done in the last week which has taken some big names out of the NHL Free Agency.
