The Ducks didn't make any moves, but made some announcements.

No word on what number Sheldon Souray, who gave up no.44, will be wearing. In addition, the Ducks have announced a pending number retirement. The no. 8 worn by Teemu Selanne for nearly all of his career will be retired on January 11 against, fittingly, Winnipeg.

Forward Jake Dowell, who spent the last two seasons in the Wild organization, signed with the Montreal Canadiens' AHL affiliate, the Hamilton Bulldogs.

Montreal

The Canadiens made additions to their coaching staff, adding experienced assistant coach Dan Lacroix and bringing in former NHL star Rob Ramage as player development coach. Most important with regards to the Habs this week was their failure to re-sign superstar defenceman PK Subban. After a month of insistent low-balling, they went to salary arbitration. Subban signed a huge contract for 8 years and $72M.

Nashville

Despite playing for Switzerland at the Sochi Olympics and having a promising stint with the big club, forward Simon Moser has signed with SC Bern. If he can sign with the Predators and get a roster opportunity by November 15, then he is allowed to re-join Nashville.

He'll have an opportunity to fight for an NHL roster.
