Several former NCAA players recently changed NHL teams, or will be changing clubs in the near future.
Cam Atkinson (Boston College), a career-long Columbus Blue Jacket, was traded to the Philadelphia Flyers. The Flyers had previously traded Shayne Gostisbehere (Union) to the Arizona Coyotes.
Jay Beagle (Alaska Anchorage) was part of a multi-player deal between his team, the Vancouver Canucks, and Arizona, while Duncan Keith (Michigan State), who helped the Chicago Blackhawks to three Stanley Cup titles, is now a member of the Edmonton Oilers.
Zach Parise (North Dakota) and Ryan Suter (Wisconsin) were bought out by the Minnesota Wild and will be seeking employment elsewhere. Zach Hyman (Michigan) is not returning to the Toronto Maple Leafs and will also become free agent.
In terms of staying put, Peter Stastny (Denver) inked a one-year deal to re-up with the the Winnipeg Jets, after Adam Gaudette (Northeastern) did the same with Chicago. Cale Makar (UMass) just signed a six-year deal with the Colorado Avalanche.
The NHL's free agency period begins tomorrow.
