Devils agree to deal with RFA Bratt
Bratt remains in Sweden and will need to get a work visa before he’s able to travel. Once he arrives, he’ll need to quarantine for seven days and test negative several times before being able to join teammates.
The Devils season opener is on Thursday, so he’ll be out for at least those two games.
Blue Jackets sign Del Zotto
“Michael has great vision and puck moving ability and has been every bit as good as we thought he would be when we brought him to camp,” said Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen. “We think the blue line is a real strength for our team, but you can never have enough good defencemen, particularly in a season like this with so many games in a relatively short period of time, and Michael has fit in very well with our group.”
Ducks bring in Hutton
Ben Hutton, signed to a PTO by ANA, is a PK specialist who had a really nice season with the Kings last year but has had pretty varied results otherwise. Worth a look. #Ducks pic.twitter.com/uc6HHDWf7f

Players on waivers
TSN: Players placed on waivers.
Colorado Avalanche – Kiefer Sherwood
Florida Panthers – Scott Wilson and Philippe Desrosiers
Los Angeles Kings – Bokondji Imama and Daniel Brickley
New York Islanders – Mason Jobst and Joshua Ho-Sang
Ottawa Senators – Maxime Lajoie
Arpon Basu: “On Noah Juulsen, important to note any team claiming him on waivers would have to be confident in his ability to be an effective NHL player after so much time lost to injury. The team claiming him couldn’t stash him on the taxi squad/AHL without putting him on waivers again.”
