Tyler Bertuzzi - Chicago Blackhawks (Four-years, $5.5M Cap Hit)

We didn't know Tyler Bertuzzi very long, it was just one season after signing last summer for $5.5 Million.

For the first two thirds of the season the signing looked like a complete bust (though the advanced numbers were very strong) as he had collected just seven goals in his first 55 games, but he turned it on down the stretch finishing with 14 goals in his final 25 games.

The Sudbury native was wanting a long term deal and the Chicago Blackhawks gave it to him as he signed for the same cap hit as last year, but it came with four years of term.

Bertuzzi will join Brodie in Illonois and become the highest paid forward on the team.

Noah Gregor - Ottawa Senators (One-year, $850,000)

Coming into the season, Noah Gregor was a restricted free agent with arbitration rights, so the club just had to qualify him, however elected not to, making him an unrestricted free agent.

The Beaumont native dressed in 63 games last season collecting 12 points, but could never really find a way to use his size and speed to his advantage. With an abundance of depth forwards the club decided to move on from Gregor.

The five year NHLer will remain in the province of Ontario as he signed a one-year deal at $850,000 with the Ottawa Senators. Once again, Gregor will remain a restricted free agent at the end of the year if the Senators decide to qualify him.
