NHL signings 2020: Complete list of all 31 teams' newest additions

Sporting News

Everything surrounding the NHL remains in flux — from the conclusion of the 2019-20 season to when the 2020-21 season will start — but that hasn't stopped NHL general managers from signing the next crop of NHL players.

Everyone from college stars to KHL players to draft picks are putting pen to paper and moving to the professional ranks in North America. Among the names added are a who's who of youngsters from the 2020 IIHF World Junior Championship, including the United States' Trevor Zegras, Alex Turcotte and K'Andre Miller, Canada's Raphael Lavoie and Russia's Grigori Denisenko and Alexander Romanov.

The St. Louis Blues added 2020 Hobey Baker Award winner Scott Perunovich while the Toronto Maple Leafs signed highly touted forward Alexander Barabanov and the Ottawa Senators nabbed defenseman Artem Zub.
