The biggest fish is off the board.
Dougie Hamilton has signed a seven-year contract with the New Jersey Devils on a deal worth $9-million per season.
Just 28, Hamilton has become an analytical darling in the NHL after finishing with the Carolina Hurricanes over the past few seasons. With 106 goals and 235 assists for 341 career points in 607 career games, Hamilton has been one of the better offensive defenders over the past half-decade and earned serious Norris Trophy consideration this season.
Hamilton joins a defense core that has P.K. Subban, Will Butcher, Ryan Graves, Damon Severson and 21-year-old sensation Ty Smith.
