The off-season is now upon us, but it’s not all rest and relaxation as teams are busy making calls and setting up their lineups for next season.

While we saw a free-agent frenzy last year as teams began preparation for the road towards the 2018 Winter Olympics in South Korea, it’s not too late to be making moves as we’ve already seen some changes take place.
