Flames Sign 4 Players
October 22, 2018
As expected, the Calgary Flames were not major players in the free agency market. The Flames put out some modest offers to players but as it turns out, they were not in the same ballpark as many other WEHL teams. The Flames did sign 4 players during the first week of Free Agency. The biggest signing was D Roman Polak – a player the Flames targeted to bring back as their number 6 defenseman.

“Roman was a strong performer for us last year - 28 points and +39 rating. We wanted him back, he wanted to come back – we are really happy to have him back and most likely will start the season paired with Nikita Zadorov.”

Flames signed 4th line forwards Stephen Gionta and JT Brown. Both players will play 4th line minutes for the Flames. Also coming to the Flames was 3rd string goalie Mike McKenna. McKenna is expected to start the season in the farm system and used on an emergency perspective only.

The Flames are still active in the trade market prior to the start of the 2018/19 season. They continue to look at ways to improve the top 3 lines, create more depth and improve on the top 4 defensemen. The team is very happy with the overall makeup of the roster so they will not overpay but they are open for business.
Stars Dip Into Free Agent Frenzy
Dallas Stars
October 19, 2018
The Stars added a couple of depth players via Free Agency this week in defensive RW Tom Kuehnhackl and Defenceman Luca Sbisa.

"We had some funds to shop with but weren't ready to break the bank on any particular player. Tom and Luca are great adds for our club and will play a vital role in Dallas this season. Tom brings a solid defensive and physical game to our 4th line, Luca will be relied on in a multiple situations and will help our young defence" said GM Decelles in a phone interview.

With all roster spots filled, expect minimal movement from the Stars until the puck drops to start the season.

Chicago Active In The Free Agent Market
Chicago Blackhawks
October 17, 2018
The Hawks had two objectives in the free agent market of looking for a right winger and improving the teams back-end. After just missing out on Perron and Kovalchuk, the team was able to sign Blake Comeau at the wing.

GM De Nitto was more succesful on the back end signing both Jack Johnson and Ian Cole to long term deal to come and solidify the second pairing behind Duncan Keith while youngster Morissey and Pulock continue to develop.
