NHL Snap Shots: Redmond, Couturier, Jagr, Stewart

ESPN reports that the Winnipeg Jets have signed defenseman Zach Redmond to a one-year deal worth $715,000.   The 24 year-old Michigan native saw his first NHL ice-time with the Jets last season, appearing in 8 games and picking up 4 points.  Redmond also spent time in the AHL last season with the St. John's IceCaps notching 19 points (11 of those points being assists) in 38 games.

The Philadelphia Flyers and Sean Couturier have agreed upon a two-year contract extension according to NHL.com.  The 20 year-old forward is now signed through the 2015-16 season at $1.75 million per year.  The Flyers' 8th overall pick in the 2011 NHL entry draft saw 46 games of ice time in the 2013 season.  He picked up 15 points (4 goals and 11 assists) during the campaign.  Couturier also played in 77 games for the Flyers in the NHL season after he was drafted, notching 13 goals and 14 assists.

There have been reports that Jaromir Jagr was in New Jersey visiting the Prudential Center and that Jagr joining the Devils was "99 percent done".   With the loss of Ilya Kovalchuk, the New Jersey Devils would now have the cap space, and the need, to sign Jagr to a short-term deal.

The St. Louis Blues have re-signed Chris Stewart to a two-year contract.  The 25 year-old forward's annual cap hit is $4.125 million annually on his contract which expires after the 2014-15 season.  Stewart was impressive offensively for the Blues this past season, scoring 36 points in the lock-out shortened regular season.
