If you were hoping for some excitement in free agency, John Carlson is not willing to oblige. He has re-signed with the Capitals. It’s an eight-year, $64 million deal. [TSN]

Ilya Kovalchuk’s long-awaited return will be in the jersey of the Los Angeles Kings. The 35-year-old Russian winger returns on a three-year deal with an AAV of $6.25 million. [ESPN]

Mark your calendar: Feb. 5, 2019, Kovalchuk returns to Newark. Will it be Free Rotten Tomato Night at Prudential Center?
