The Calgary Flames have signed their 2006 4th round draft pick Hugo Carpentier of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies. In addition, the Florida Panthers have signed their 1st round - 10th overall pick for 2006, Michael Frolik of the Rimouski Oceanic, to an entry level contract. There has still been no official word on the Ducks having signed the Mooseheads' own Bryce Swan. All signings from the 2006 draft must be complete by the June 1st deadline. What up Swany?
Also, the NJ Devils do not look like they are going to be signing 2006 (round 3) draft pick Kirill Tulupov, an import Russian defenseman who plays for the Victoriaville Tigres. They have recently signed young Finnish free agent Anssi Salmela, who was the leading goal scorer among defensemen for the Finnish league in the 2007-2008 season.
