Bruins Sign 2017 First-Round Pick Urho Vaakanainen To Entry-Level Contract

4 days ago   |   By NESN

The Boston Bruins have signed defenseman Urho Vaakanainen to a three-year entry-level contract with a salary cap hit of $925,000 , the team announced Wednesday.
The 19-year-old defenseman was Boston's first-round pick in the 2017 NHL draft.

Vaakanainen is one of several talented defensemen in the Bruins organization, a group that includes NHLers Charlie McAvoy, Brandon Carlo and Matt Grzelcyk.

5 days ago   |   By TheScore

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs will soon need a considerable raise from the $1.9 million he'll earn in 2018 on the final year of his rookie contract. However, the fifth-round pick in 2015 is focusing only on the season ahead. "This is a business and there's a lot going on," Diggs said Wednesday on "PFT Live" with Mike Florio.

Former Maryland guard Kevin Huerter will need two months to recover from surgery on torn ligaments in his right hand, sources told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski. Huerter is a likely first-round pick in next week's NBA draft.

Measured at 6-foot-7, Huerter averaged 14.8 points, five rebounds, and 3.4 assists per game for the Terrapins during his sophomore season before declaring for the...

How often are top 10 NHL Draft picks traded in June?

5 days ago   |   By Sportsnet

Just nine days away from the NHL Draft, rumour season is picking up and some GMs have left the door open on possibly trading their first-round picks.
The Red Wings are “open to possibly move” ; the Montreal Canadiens have said it'd be difficult to move the third overall pick, but their need at centre and the absence of such a prospect there has opened up all kinds of speculation ; and the Edmonton Oilers have a greater need to make the playoffs than make a top 10 pick again, so if the right offer comes along to improve them, a trade could potentially be had there as well.
