Krejci will stay in Boston for another few years.

The Boston Bruins signed center David Krejci to a six-year, $43.5 million contract extension Thursday.

The deal begins in the 2015-16 season after the final season of his current contract.

The NHL released an article with the Best 14 Right Wingers... and two Avs made the list!

7. Ryan O'Reilly, Colorado Avalanche, 20 points
2013-14: 28 goals, 64 points, 80 games played

A solid two-way forward, O'Reilly led the Avalanche with 28 goals (nine on the power play), a career high. O'Reilly had six points in seven playoff games, but Colorado was upset by Minnesota in the Western Conference First Round.

Barrie got a two year deal.

"Tyson is a big part of the young nucleus of our team," vice president of hockey operations Joe Sakic said. "He is a gifted young defenseman who brings a lot of offense. We are pleased to have him under contract and look forward to his contribution this upcoming season."

Steve Moore confirmed that he settled his court case.

Steve Moore and his lawyer have confirmed that the former NHL player has accepted a settlement agreement in the lawsuit involving Todd Bertuzzi and the Vancouver Canucks over an on-ice attack that occurred in 2004.

The NHL team and Bertuzzi's lawyer said last month that a deal had been reached, but Moore and lawyer Tim Danson didn't confirm it until Thursday.

Moore was seeking $68 million in damages in a civil lawsuit, which was originally filed in 2006. It had been scheduled to go to court on Sept. 8.

"This day comes with mixed emotions," Moore said in a statement. "These years have been very difficult for me and my family. The injuries I sustained in my rookie year, the years I spent trying to return to my NHL career, and dealing with the loss of my career and the ensuing legal case, have been long and trying experiences. While nothing replaces the loss of one's dream, I am happy my family will no longer be burdened by an unresolved legal case, and I am grateful to be able to move forward.
