NHL Intends to Slide Expiring Contacts to End of 2019-20 Season


Recommended Posts

With the NHL and NHL Players? Association busy finalizing a return to play format that could see the league resume with 24 teams later this summer, we?re starting to get more clarity on how the NHL will handle the dozens of players, coaches and other staffers whose contracts technically expire June 30.


The players should be easy.


An NHL source tells The Athletic that the ?intention is to agree on a slide with the NHL Players? Association, which would uniformly extend all contracts through the end of the 2019-20 season.?


This would also apply to minor-leaguers on two-way contracts. If a contract expires June 30, that player would still be allowed to be part of an expanded NHL roster through the end of 2019-20.


Some established pending unrestricted free agents this would apply to include St. Louis? Alex Pietrangelo, Arizona?s Taylor Hall, Boston?s Torey Krug, Toronto?s Tyson Barrie, Nashville?s Mikael Granlund, Minnesota?s Mikko Koivu, Chicago?s Corey Crawford, Vancouver?s Jacob Markstrom, Vegas? Robin Lehner and Washington?s Braden Holtby.
