|Capitals sign Dan Ellis to two-way deal||07-04-2015|
|Dan Ellis G FLA|
The Washington Capitals added some goaltending depth by inking Dan Ellis to a one-year, two-way contract on Saturday.
|Ellis would likely fight for time at the AHL level, but he's a nice resource if injuries strike. The 35-year-old spent the last two seasons with the Florida Panthers organization. In 2014-15, he played 37 games for the San Antonio Rampage and eight for the Panthers.|
|Cody Bass signs one-year deal with Preds||07-04-2015|
|Cody Bass C CHI|
The Predators have inked free agent center Cody Bass to a one-year deal, two-way deal.
|If Bass plays in the NHL he will make $575,000, while if he toils in the AHL, he will earn $125,000. The 28-year-old Bass is far from being a prospect as he has been mediocre in the AHL the past eight seasons. He should be considered organizational depth, and as a result, has no fantasy value.|
|Blake Comeau should fit in well on Avs||07-04-2015|
|Blake Comeau LW COL|
Blake Comeau should have no trouble feeling at home with the Avalanche.
|Comeau has a number of long-standing relationships with current Avalanche players. He is friendly with Jarome Iginla and Alex Tanguay from his days with the Flames and is a member of the Kelowna Rockets Alumni, an organization which Tyson Barrie is very active in. That said, Comeau is likely to play on Colorado's third line and will have limited to no fantasy value in 2015-16.|
|Mike Hoffman files for arbitration||07-04-2015|

Mike Hoffman, who had a breakout rookie season in 2014-15, has filed for salary arbitration.

|The talented winger made $750,000 last season but is due for a significant increase after scoring 27 goals and registering 48 points in 79 games. Although we do not know what figures have been filed by either side, we do know that the Senators and Hoffman are very far apart in their positions at present. Stay tuned.|
|Crouse finishes development camp with flurry||07-04-2015|
Lawson Crouse completed the Panthers' development camp with a flurry.
Fort Lauderdale Sun-Sentinel
|The team's top draft pick in last week's entry draft scored a hat trick and a shootout goal on the final day to earn praise from the Florida coaching staff. Although known more for his hard-nosed style of play, Crouse may have quite a bit more offensive potential than even optimistic scouts believe. Keep an eye on him in training camp as he may have an outside chance to make the Cats' roster.|
