Chris Tanev should be ready to go
Wes Gilbertson: Calgary Flames GM Brad Treliving on defenseman Chris Tanev who had offseason surgery on his shoulder: “We anticipate he’ll be ready to go at the start of camp and then we’ll monitor it throughout … Obviously, the focal point is Game 1, and we expect him to be ready to go.”
Eric Francis: Tanev hopes to get clearance by team doctor in the next week.
Cap Friendly: Signing PTOs on Tuesday were:
Another players have been signed to a PTO yesterday. The Los Angeles Kings have signed Nate Thompson to a PTO. Daniel Sprong has signed with the Kraken to a PTO. One of them deserves to be in the NHL. The other one doesn’t. Guess who is who. pic.twitter.com/ULjY0gtt28

The Senators sign Tyler Motte
Frank Seravalli: The Ottawa Senators have signed forward Tyler Motte to a one-year contract worth $1.35 million.
Cap Friendly: With a 21-man roster – 12 forwards, seven defensemen, two goalies and one player on the IR – the Senators now have $5,690,119 in projected salary cap space.
Alex Formenton remains their lone unsigned RFA.
Graeme Nichols: “Motte is a good defensive left winger who has played centre. Gives Ottawa a quality depth option. If he can play centre, he would be an upgrade on Gambrell. He affords the Senators the opportunity to be patient with Greig (Belleville) unless Formenton’s situation remains unclear.”
Shawn Simpson: “Certainly a sign that Formenton isn’t signing anytime soon. IMO”
