NHL free agency kicked off July 1 and two former Kitchener Rangers are heading to new teams.

Forward Tobias Rieder is rejoining the Edmonton Oilers, signing a one year deal.

He was a fourth round draft pick of the Oilers back in 2011.

Rieder put up 25 points in 78 games with Arizona and Los Angeles last season.

Meantime, defenceman John Moore is staying in the east after inking a five year deal with Boston.

Moore, who spent the last three seasons in New Jersey, had 18 points in 81 games last season.




Boston also signed Kitchener Rangers prospect Axel Andersson to an entry level contract.

The Rangers took him 51st overall in Thursday's CHL Import Draft.
