After the first week of 2015 NHL Free Agency, big names found themselves in new cities, hoping for a “fresh” start for their new teams.

Week one of the 2015 NHL Free agency season set us up with some exciting and eyebrow-raising moves.

Hockey fans have been witness to some blockbuster trades and getting cities excited and ready to go for puck drop. However, we still have to wait three months till that time. We will just have to wait impatiently, till that glorious day in October.

Right now, fans will need to endure the dog days of summer and try to distract ourselves with America’s pastime for the sports enthusiasts. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, go on vacation if you can get away from work.

We’ve compiled a list of some of the most notable players that were involved this offseason, in transactions that saw them land in new places. It will take some getting used to, for sure. But, it should make for an exciting 2015-2016 NHL season.

I'm a blogger trying to make it in this world. Have been, and always will be, a fan of the NYR and NYG. Writing for the New Jersey Devils cause, well, someone has to do it!
