Sobotka has already committed to playing in the KHL in 2014-15, but his contract with the St. Louis Blues will still take effective should he decide to return to the NHL later in his career. After spending a season with the Blues, he will be eligible to become an unrestricted free agent.
Cody Franson has inked a one-year, $3.3 million contract with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Franson had an arbitration hearing scheduled for Monday, so the two sides agreed to terms just under the wire. The deal represents a substantial raise over his previous one-year, $2 million deal. He had five goals and 33 points in 79 games in 2013-14.
Vladimir Sobotka's arbitration hearing with the St. Louis Blues is scheduled for Monday.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Sobotka has already signed a contract to play with the KHL's Avangard Omsk, so he won't be with St. Louis in 2014-15 regardless of what the ruling is. However, the Blues are going forward with arbitration anyways because they want to retain his NHL rights. If Sobotka decides to return to North America later, then he must honor his arbitrated awarded contract before he can become an unrestricted free agent.
Seth Jones has been working with Predators strength and conditioning coach David Good to bulk up over the summer.
The Nashville Tennessean
Jones has already added five pounds, which brings him up to 210. "Physically he needs to mature more," assistant coach Phil Housley said. "He has to get stronger on his feet. He has to get more leverage, starting with the basic foundation of his legs up. That's just going to come with maturity and having seasons of working out as he grows. Mentally, I think he's mature." Jones had 25 points in his rookie season, but he was also minus-23.
Leon Draisaitl has decided to spend the summer in Edmonton so that he can better prepare for training camp.
Draisaitl isn't a lock to make the Oilers' opening game roster, but he's working hard to avoid getting cut. He's worth keeping an eye on because there's a chance that he'll serve as a top-six forward if he makes the squad. He has a ton of offensive upside and has been compared favorably to Anze Kopitar.
