an extension of the contract before the season is more than possible


This summer, the largest transaction completed in the NHL is undoubtedly the one that resulted Evgenii Dadonov in Montreal Matthew Tkachuk (and a fourth-round conditional pick) in Florida. In return, the Panthers sent Jonathan Huberdeau, Mackenzie Weegar, Cole Schwindt, and a 2025 first-round pick to the Flames, a pretty steep price tag for Tkachuk’s services.

That said, with Huberdeau and Weegar set to become free agents at the end of the 2022-23 season, Brad Treliving still had some work to do. The good news is that Huberdeau’s case is now resolved, but Weegar still doesn’t have a long-term deal.

However, even if the defender hasn’t signed yet, it’s not really impossible for him to do so before the season starts. According to David Pagnotta, Weegar and the Flames are in talks right now and there is a real possibility that everything can be fixed before the campaign begins.

Also according to Pagnotta, both the Flames clan and the Weegar clan are interested in a long-term pact that would keep the defender in Alberta and are working hard to make it happen. Basically, the question is mainly whether Treliving and Weegar’s agent will be able to work out all the details before the campaign starts.

My little finger tells me that sooner or later it will happen. The Flames won’t want to let him go after just a year, especially since he was acquired against Tkachuk.

Furthermore, Bo Horvat and the Canucks are also in a similar situation. The two clans hope to settle the practice before the first game of the season and, according to Pagnotta, it could be well done.

That said, Pagnotta notes that in the case of JT Miller, negotiations are currently slow, but could accelerate over the course of the month.

In short, in the coming weeks we could really see the signing of some contractual extensions. Will it be the same for Cole Caufield with CH? The answer in the coming weeks.
