Hurricanes re-sign Forsling
He’ll get $700,000 in the NHL and $250,000 in the minors.
“Gustav is a dependable defenseman that fits our system at both the NHL and AHL level,” Waddell said. “Our organizational depth at defense is strong, and Gustav is a representation of that.”
Where the Capitals roster sits right now
Two spots could be open and maybe filled by Daniel Sprong at $725,000. The second spot could go to defenseman Paul LaDue. If they LTIR Michal Kempny, that could leave them with $50,123 in salary cap space.
They may have eight defensemen on their roster, so they could end up moving one. Right-handed Nick Jensen could be the odd man out. He’s got three years left on his deal at $2.5 million per.
JJ Regan: (On the Siegenthaler deal) “I think Sieg’s low cap is about 2 things. 1st, the team should have more $ for him next season (famous last words, I know) after they lose a player to the exp draft. 2nd, it takes him to arbitration eligibility. My sense is they like Siegs and I don’t think he’s going anywhere.”
Maple Leafs re-sign Dermott
Mark Masters: Dermott after signing the deal: “There’s a lot of stuff going on in the world & it can take its toll on everything … but at the end of the day I just wanted to be playing hockey & whatever number’s there is the number that’s there & just honoured to be back & excited to go play”
