The Calgary Flames signing Oliver Kylington was pretty huge. After falling deep into the second-round of the draft, Kylington inking a deal this summer comes as a surprise.
The Boston Bruins signed defenseman Jakub Zboril to an entry-level contract. Zboril went in the first half of the draft. I don’t expect Zboril to fight for an NHL job yet, however it will be interesting to see if the Bruins can get him to play for the Providence Bruins of the AHL, similar to what Julius Honka did.
Another first rounder from the 2015 NHL Draft, Travis Konecny, was signed by the Philadelphia Flyers to an entry-level contract. Konecny slid a little in the draft, but impressed the heck out of Flyers fans at their prospect camp.
