Las Vegas has signed defenseman Brayden McNabb to a three year $8.55 million contract.  

Big 31 year old solid two way player - that's a pretty good lock-up for under $3M in cap hit but of course Nevada has at least a 10% advantage in income tax rates vs. Quebec based players for their home games etc.

Jack Eichel is back on the ice.  Eichel, who had artificial disk replacement surgery on Nov. 12, has recovered enough, to return to the ice to take a few laps.

Jack Eichel is one step closer to making his Vegas Golden Knights debut.  Head coach Peter DeBoer announced on Monday that Eichel has been cleared for contact and is getting closer and closer to making his debut. There is still no timetable for his return because as DeBoer noted on Monday, it is the first time he has participated in a full contact practice “in 17 or 18 months.”  It is still a noteworthy step in his rehab after undergoing surgery shortly after the trade from the Buffalo Sabres earlier this season.

It is encouraging news for the Golden Knights because Eichel’s debut will give them the kind of player they have been lacking in their quest for a Stanley Cup: An elite top-line center. The Golden Knights have had top-tier players on the wing, on defense, and in goal during their first five years in the NHL but they have never really had a player like Eichel to center the top line. That could be a game-changer assuming Eichel is healthy and able to play like he did in Buffalo.

In 10 appearances with Owen Sound, Guzda recorded a 5-4-1 record, .915 save percentage and 3.20 goals against average.  He was named OHL Goaltender of the Month for January 2022 and December 2021, and owns a 14-4-1 overall record since Oct. 30. He has appeared in 156 regular season OHL games with Owen Sound and Barrie, with a 74-53-18 record.

The New York Islanders have placed Austin Czarnik on waivers according to CapFriendly, as teams return from the All-Star break. The move suggests he’s ready to return to action after going on injured reserve last month. After clearing earlier in the season, he has spent enough time with the NHL club to require waivers again before being assigned to the AHL.

The Restriction Exemption Program in Alberta will end, effective Tuesday night, according to TSN's Salim Valji. This means that as of midnight on Feb. 8, fans do not need to show proof of vaccination to enter any venue in Alberta.  This would apply to the Scotiabank Saddledome in Calgary and Rogers Place in Edmonton. However, municipalities in Alberta have to the option to implement their own set of public health restrictions in place of the ones put in place by the province.  Food and beverage service will be allowed for fans at venues. Capacity limits remain at all venues until March 1.

The Washington Capitals have placed Dennis Cholowski on waivers according to Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet, the second time he’s found himself there this season. The Capitals claimed Cholowski from the Seattle Kraken at the beginning of the season and now he could be on his way to another team.

The 23-year-old played just seven games for the Capitals during his stint in Washington, averaging fewer than 14 minutes of ice time whenever he did get into the lineup. It’s been a dramatic fall-off for a player that was selected 20th overall in 2016 and quickly made his way to the NHL. In 2018-19, Cholowski played 52 games as a rookie for the Detroit Red Wings, but has just 59 in the three years since.
