There are no articles to link to, but there's this piece of news/non-news:

- The Red Wings have signed Robbie Russo, a former Isles draft pick they didn't qualify, to a two-year deal. No matter, though. Russo ain't nothing to worry about - this isn't a Jared Spurgeon situation. [Winging it in Motown]

- Matt O'Connor, a goalie signed by the Senators out of school and written off by them, is trying to break back into the NHL with the Predators. [Sportsnet]
