The free agent frenzy began at noon ET Friday and the checkbooks were out around the NHL as several big-name free agents signed big-money contracts.

  • I have an AHL-Level Free Agent Tracker complete with a 384 players. Top 50 forwards and defenseman and top 20 goaltenders lists included! This has been updated to reflect all of Friday's signings.
  • I also have team-by-team lists for all 30 AHL clubs. Who is under contract, which free agents have yet to sign and more. I'll be updating the team lists this weekend to reflect the initial free agent surge:
After the jump, a look at what each AHL team has added via either NHL contracts made by their parent club or on AHL-only contracts after the first day of free agency.
