NHL notebook: Datsyuk, Red Wings reach deal
• Pavel Datsyuk and the Red Wings agreed on a three-year contract, which keeps the Russian superstar through the 2016-17 season. He can't sign the contract until July 5 because he was entering the last year of his current deal. The extension is worth $22.5 million total, with a cap hit of $7.5 million annually, ESPN.com reported. Datsyuk led Detroit with 15 goals and 49 points in the 48-game, lockout-shortened season.
• Defenseman Mark Streit is staying in Philadelphia. Less than a week after Streit was acquired by the Flyers in a trade with the Islanders, the 35-year-old agreed to a four-year $21 million contract. The deal prevents Streit from entering free agency on July 5. The Flyers dealt minor-league forward Shane Harper and a fourth-round pick in the 2014 draft in exchange for the rights of the Islanders captain.
• The Kings reached agreement on terms of a new six-year contract with Slava Voynov. The 23-year-old set a Kings single-season playoff record for most goals by a defenseman (6) and most game-winning goals (4). He totaled new career highs for points (25) and assists (19) during the regular season.
• The Senators' home is getting a new name. The team said Scotiabank Place will be called Canadian Tire Centre, starting in July. Terms of the deal were not disclosed. This will be the fourth name change since the building opened in 1996.
• The Sharks agreed to a contract extension with star centerLogan Couture to keep him off the market next summer.
• Sabres owner Terry Pegula favors re-signing goalie Ryan Miller and forward Thomas Vanek to long-term contracts, while acknowledging both players will have a say in determining their respective futures.
