After the 2016 season, where he finished with 31 homers and 85 RBI's, Escobar decided to skip spring training this year and instead work on his game in Japan. His new team, the Tokyo Yakult Swallows, are expected to use him as their leadoff hitter.

The Edmonton Oilers transferred a fifth-round draft selection in 2014 (Liam Coughlin) and a third-round draft pick in 2015 (later traded to the New York Rangers, who picked Sergey Zobrovskiy) to the Ottawa Senators on March 5, 2014. The Dallas Stars signed him as a free agent on July 1, 2014. He played two games for them before being placed on injured reserve.
Hemsky scored one goal and added three assists for four points in two games with the Stars this season. He had nine goals and 20 points in 42 games last year with the Oilers. Hemsky is a veteran center who has won two Stanley Cups with the Cup winning team in Dallas in 2009. He has also been to the Conference Finals twice more with the Stars after that first championship. Hemsky is expected to be one of the top centers in the NHL this season if he can stay healthy.
In 901 career games with the Oilers, Stars and Senators, Hemsky has 166 goals, 319 points and 10 goals in 79 playoff games. He won the Stanley Cup with the Oilers in 2006-07 and 2008-09.
Hemsky's trade came one day after the Oilers announced they had signed center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins to a seven-year contract extension worth $7.575 million per year. The deal will pay Nugent-Hopkins an average annual value of $894,333 until 2024 when he will be 35 years old.
The Los Angeles Kings traded Ben Bishop to the Tampa Bay Lightning for a seventh-round draft selection in 2017 and a conditional pick in the 2017 NHL Draft on February 26, 2017. The Tampa Bay Lightning traded Andy Andreoff to the Los Angeles Kings. The condition specified that Tampa Bay would receive the second overall selection if Bishop is still with the league this season.
Andreoff has one goal and four assists in 21 games this season for the Kings. He won't help them much at the moment but they will need him to be better next year since LA didn't make any moves before the trade deadline this year.
Bishop has two wins in nine games this season for the Lightning. They are hoping he can be their new number one goalie now that Anders Lindback is out for the rest of the season after having surgery to repair a herniated disc in his neck.
Tampa Bay acquired Bishop from Dallas in July 2016. The 27-year-old has 12 years of experience in the NHL with the Stars, Blues, Hurricanes and Lightning. He has a career record of 94-76-21 with three shutouts.
Budaj has one win and five losses this season with a 3.52 goals against average and.856 save percentage. He was drafted by Dallas in 2003 and played there until 2008 when he joined Slovakia for the 2008 Winter Olympics.
