Ryan Suter (ankle) has been on the ice for the last couple of weeks.

Suter intends to ramp up his efforts in the next couple weeks. He was encouraged by his latest CT scan and he is confident that he's on schedule to be available for training camp. Suter suffered a fractured ankle back on March 31, which required surgery to repair. Suter doesn't plan to push himself, but he hopes to play in the Stars & Stripes Showdown in Plymouth, Michigan, later this month. The game will pay tribute to Jim Johannson, who passed away in January.

Senators assistant GM Randy Lee has resigned from his position.

Lee also served as the GM of the AHL's Belleville Senators. It's been an off-season to forget for him, as he was charged with two different counts of harassment from an incident that occurred with a 19-year-old shuttle bus driver in Buffalo. The organization has already said that they're going to start searching for his replacement right away.

The Montreal Canadiens have acquired Hunter Shinkaruk from the Calgary Flames for Kerby Rychel.

Shinkaruk is currently a restricted free agent, which means Montreal will have to sign him to a new deal. The 23-year-old was a first round draft pick of the Vancouver Canucks (24th overall) back in 2013. He was eventually traded to Calgary in 2016, but he hasn't developed the way either team expected him to. Shinkaruk had 17 goals and 32 points in 63 games in the AHL last season. He hasn't suited up in an NHL game since the 2016-17 season, but he's still young enough that he could develop into a useful player and he may get a chance with Montreal in 2018-19 at some point.

The Anaheim Ducks have signed Ondrej Kase to a three-year, $7.8 million contract.

That works out to a cap hit of $2.6 million per season. "Ondrej is a skilled player that has a bright future in this league," said Ducks executive VP and GM Bob Murray. "He can skate and score, and will continue to improve as a player as he gains more experience." The 22-year-old had 20 goals and 38 points in 66 games with Anaheim last season. He should be able to improve on those numbers in 2018-19. Kase will be a restricted free agent when this new contract expires after the 2020-21 season.

Andrej Sekera underwent surgery to repair a torn Achilles tendon.

Sekera suffered the injury during off-season training. The 32-year-old will now be sidelined indefinitely. Sekera has had some tough luck with injuries lately, as he also missed a significant amount of time with a knee injury. It's a major blow to a team that's already thin on the blue line. There's no real timeline for Sekera's return at this point.

Ryan Ellis has signed an eight-year, $50 million extension with the Nashville Predators, according to TSN's Bob McKenzie.

His cap hit comes in at $6.25 million per season once the extension kicks in and he'll get a $7 million signing bonus on July 1st, 2019. Ellis was set to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season, but Nashville has now ensured that he'll be around for the next nine seasons. The 27-year-old had nine goals and 32 points in 44 games last year. Ellis is one of the very good puck-moving defensemen in the league, and the fact that the Preds were able to lock him up is nothing but good news for them. Assuming he's able to stay healthy, Ellis will be a solid option in standard fantasy leagues heading into 2018-19.

The New Jersey Devils have signed Steven Santini to a three-year, $4.25 million contract.

That works out to an annual average value of just under $1.417 million. He'll earn $1.1 million this season, $1.5 million in 2019-20 and $1.65 million in 2020-21. The 23-year-old split last season between the NHL and AHL. Santini had two goals, 10 points and 21 penalty minutes in 36 games with the Devils, and three goals, three assists and eight penalty minutes in 27 AHL games. "We are excited to lock up Steven, a young, developing defenseman, for the next three seasons," said GM Ray Shero. "He provides size and a physical element that complements our existing defensive group moving forward." Santini still has time to develop into a solid defenseman, but don't expect him to carry any fantasy value next season.

The Ottawa Senators have signed forward Brady Tkachuk to a three-year entry level contract.

With the signing now official, the are only three teams Tkachuk is eligible to play for this season are the Ottawa Senators, Belleville Senators (AHL) and the London Knights (OHL). "Brady Tkachuk exemplifies all the attributes around which we want to improve the Ottawa Senators," said Senators GM Pierre Dorion. "He is a young man of exceptional character. We know how much he agonized over leaving Boston University, and we are encouraged by the degree of accountability and commitment this shows from him. Through tenacity, combativeness and work ethic, he also exemplifies leadership skills that we know will benefit the team now and well into the future. Most of all, Brady has shown us through his maturity that he is coachable, committed to teamwork, and determined to help us strengthen our team chemistry." Tkachuk's efforts will now turn to making the Sens roster out of training camp. He finished his college career with eight goals and 23 assists in 40 games.

The New York Islanders have signed Noah Dobson to a three-year, entry-level contract.

The Islanders selected Dobson 12th overall in last June's NHL Entry Draft. The 18-year-old had 17 goals and 69 points in 67 games with the QMJHL's Acadie-Bathurst Titan last season. Dobson has performed well with Team Canada at the World Junior Summer Showcase, but don't expect him to be in the NHL this season. He'll likely head back to the junior ranks for one or two more seasons.

Brady Tkachuk is reportedly expected to sign with the Ottawa Senators, according to ESPN's John Buccigross.

According to the report, Tkachuk has informed Boston University coach Albie O'Connell that he intends to turn pro and sign with the Senators. He stands a good chance to earn a roster spot at training camp going into the 2018-19 campaign. If Tkachuk isn't ready then he could be assigned to the OHL's London Knights or the AHL's Belleville Senators and could play in the World Junior Championship. He was supposed to announce his decision by Sunday, so an official announcement should come shortly.
