Flyers re-sign Hagg
He’ll get $1.5 million next year and $1.7 million in 2021-22.
Predators loan Trenin to KHL

Four approaches to the fix the Maple Leafs blue line
Luke Fox of Sportsnet: The Toronto Maple Leafs need to improve their defense this offseason. There are four approaches that GM Kyle Dubas can look at over the next few weeks.
The big UFA swing – Alex Pietrangelo – Has an eight-year, $8 million per season deal on the table but could get in the $9 million range if he goes to free agency. If the Maple Leafs could convince him to sign, they’ll need to move out money, and that would likely be William Nylander.
Dive into the trade market – They have the Penguins No. 15 pick, Andreas Johnsson, Alexander Kerfoot and Frederik Andersen to offer up. It wouldn’t come cheap to add someone like Matt Dumba, Aaron Ekblad, Rasmus Ristolainen, David Savard or Brett Pesce.
They’ll likely need to acquire at least one right-handed Dman, but if not, they could roll out.
