After over 1,000 NHL Games and an entire NHL career in one town, the Sens all time penalty king Chris Neil desires to continue his career after parting ways with the Ottawa Senators.
It has been made official. We’ll see how he does in Free Agency come July 1st.
In other Sens News; Captain Erik Karlsson has undergone surgery on his foot and is facing a 4 month recovery period. That’ll cut into next season at bit.
It’s going to be a wild and wholly NHL Offseason and some fans are mad at Dion Phaneuf for not waiving the ‘no movement’ clause in his contract.
So, the guy likes it here, and fans are mad?
Fans can be weird. He’s been a great Senator.
We’ve got a 31st Team coming into the League next year.
The Las Vegas team, known as: the GOLDEN KNIGHTS
With that, there will be an EXPANSION DRAFT. And with that, each team will lose a player.
And again, with that, there will a WHOLE BUNCH of jockeying as teams get ready for this event, which leads into the AMATUER DRAFT, and then FREE AGENCY.
Lots going on.
Get ready for the fur to fly in the NHL….the expansion draft deadline is Saturday at 5pm.
Picks will be announced at the NHL Awards next Wednesday
