Red Wings have signed Dan Bylsma as their assistant coach. Bylsma spent 6 seasons in Pittsburgh winning the Stanley Cup in his first year with the Penguins and going onto to lead the Penguins to a 2nd place finish or better every year with the club. After Pittsburgh and Blysma split in 2014, Bylsma went to Buffalo for a short two years where he combined for a 68-73-23 record. Bylsma won the Jack Adams in 2010-11.

Anderson out in Ottawa?
The Senators have come out and said they will be looking for trade partners to get rid of Craig Anderson, the 37-year-old goaltender had one of the worst years in his 16-year career. The only issue with Anderson is his 2 years and 4.75 AAV left on his contract. Not many teams will want to eat that or even half of that for a 37-year-old goaltender.
