NHL notebook: Senators deal for Ryan

| Friday, July 5, 2013, 9:18 p.m.

The Ottawa Senators wasted little time to fill the loss of captain Daniel Alfredsson by acquiring forward Bobby Ryan in a trade with Anaheim on Friday.

In exchange for landing the four-time 30-goal scorer, the Senators dealt forwards Jakob Silfverbeg, Stefan Noesen and their first-round pick in next year's draft to Anaheim.

The deal was completed hours into the start of the NHL's free-agency period and shortly after Alfredsson signed a one-year deal with the Red Wings.

Ryan has 289 points in 378 career games.

Ribeiro chooses Coyotes

The Coyotes spent the past four years searching for impact players but didn't have the money to land many due to the constraints of being run by the NHL.

Now that an owner is all but in place, the Coyotes finally made a big-splash signing.

Landing one of the most coveted offensive players at the start of the free agency period, the Coyotes signed forward Mike Ribeiro to a four-year, $22 million contract.

Leafs keep Bozak

The Maple Leafs and Tyler Bozak agreed to a $21 million, five-year contract.

Bozak had 12 points and 28 points in the shortened season.

The Leafs also signed David Clarkson, a former Devil, to a seven-year, $36.75 million deal.

Jackets lock up Horton

The Jackets made major move to shore up their offense by signing free-agent forward Nathan Horton away from the Bruins.

The forward signed a seven-year deal worth $37.1 million.

Horton, who still needs offseason shoulder surgery, has averaged 23 goals over the past eight seasons.

Lightning get Filppula

The Lightning agreed to sign free-agent forward Valtteri Filppula to a five-year, $25 million contract.

He had just nine goals and 17 points in 41 games last season.

Flyers make splash

The Flyers made it official Friday when they signed captain Claude Giroux to an eight-year extension worth over $64 million.

They followed that with a $1.65 million, one-year deal with goalie Ray Emery. They also signed former Edmonton goalie Yann Danis to a one-year, two-way contract.

Oilers sign Ference

The Oilers added experience to their defense, signing Andrew Ference.

He signed a four-year, $13 million deal, a hefty raise from his last deal with the Bruins.

Devils land Clowe

The Devils opened free agency by signing forward Ryane Clowe to a five-year, $24.25 million contract.

They then followed up by adding another veteran forward, Rostislav Olesz, to a one-year, $1 million deal.

Isles re-sign Nabokov

The Islanders agreed to re-sign goalie Evgeni Nabokov and added two more players in the first hour of the NHL's free-agency period.

The team announced it agreed to sign forwards Pierre-Marc Bouchard and Peter Regin to one-year deals.

Koivu returns to Ducks

Saku Koivu is returning to the Ducks after signing a one-year contract.

Koivu is a 17-year NHL veteran, who returns for a fifth season in Anaheim. He had 27 points (eight goals, 19 assists) in 47 games last season

Hurricanes ink pair
