  • Bruce Garrioch via twitter: The New York Rangers and Ruslan Fedotenko continue to talk about a contract. 3 other teams have shown interest if he can’t get a deal worked out the Rangers.
  • Helene Elliott of the LA Times: Los Angeles Kings backup battle was won by Jonathan Bernier. Erik Ersberg didn’t get into an exhibition game after injuring his hand. He was unlikely to beat out Bernier anyways as he was in Murray’s doghouse for most of last season. Ersberg is set to make $750,000 this season, and will likely be put on waivers.
  • Ben Kuzma via twitter: Brendan Morrison was released by the Vancouver Canucks, he never received a contract offer. Morrison was asked about the possibility of retirement, adding “No, I’ll see how this year goes and make a decision. I still feel I can play. I know I can play.” Ian Walker of the Vancouver Sun: Morrison had a good camp, with the Calgary Flames the best bet to go after the 35-year old forward due to the amount of injuries they’ve had down the middle. Brian Burke said in an email that the Maple Leafs don’t have any interest in Morrison. The Canucks are down to 28 players after sending Victor Oreskovich, Sergei Shirokov, Yann Sauve and Bill Sweatt to the Manitoba Moose.
  • George Richards of the Miami Herald: The Florida Panthers goalie of the future, Jacob Markstrom was sent to the AHL by the team. Michael Grabner, Andrew Peters and Joe Callahan were released by the club, and will be sent to the AHL if they clear waivers. Grabner being put on waivers is a bit surprising since he was part of the deal that sent Keith Ballard to the Canucks.
  • Nick Kypreos: Sources are saying that Kyle Wellwood is heading to the KHL, for a 1 year deal worth over $1 million with bonuses.
