I have a couple of short articles to report. First the San Jose Sharks signed back-up goalie Mikka Kiprusoff to a one-year contract extension. Also Daniel Alfredsson has agreed to a one yr/$3 million contract with the Ottawa Senators. The rumor that Jason Allison was close to signing for 3 yrs./$21-22 million with the Bruins is apparently false, and negotiations continue to go on. And finally espn.com is reporting that Bryan Berard will attempt to make a comeback to the NHL with the New York Rangers.
