What is Mikey Reilly’s future in the Canadiens organization?

What is Mikey Reilly’s future in the Canadiens organization? The defenceman will be a restricted free agent on July 1. As of right now, the Montreal Canadiens have 10 defencemen under contract for the 2019-20 season, and six pending free agents at the position. That doesn’t even include prospects like Scott Walford and Jarret Tyszka - who can be signed until June 1, nor any potential signings or additions come July 1 or before. Needless to say, there can be a lot of changes to the Canadiens blue line coming and Mikey Reilly, who spent the entire 2018-19 season on the NHL roster, will be front and centre in any decisions that are made.

The deadline for NHL teams to issue qualifying offers to pending restricted free agents was 5 p.m. ET on Tuesday. By issuing the offers, teams are given the right of first refusal or draft choice compensation should the player sign an offer sheet with Edmonton Oilers: Jujhar Khaira (F), Jesse Puljujarvi (F).

Restricted free agents Jesse Puljujarvi of the Edmonton Oilers and Julius Honka of the Dallas Stars are ineligible to play in the NHL for the remainder of Sportsnet’s Chris Johnston reported Saturday that even if his contract was traded by the Oilers, Puljujarvi planned to finish the season with Karpat.

Even with interest from the KHL, Jesse Puljujarvi seems focused on playing in the NHL next season. Where he’ll do that though is still up in the air, as several reports have come out explaining that a trade may be the best outcome. Now the player himself admits that is a strong possibility, as Puljujarvi spoke to Finnish outlet Iltalehti and explained he may be wearing a different jersey next year. He also revealed that he’s back skating after the hip surgery that ended his 2018-19 season prematurely.

Puljujarvi, 21, was the Oilers’ top pick in 2016 going fourth overall after Auston Matthews, Patrik Laine and Pierre-Luc Dubois. Unfortunately he hasn’t quite worked out like that impressive trio and has just 37 points through 139 NHL games. Now as he heads into the offseason without a contract — his entry-level deal is set to expire and make him a restricted free agent — his future in the league is up in the air. Puljujarvi will not be waiver-exempt next season, meaning wherever he does land will have to at least give him a shot at the highest level. That likely makes a trade more difficult, as he hasn’t shown to this point an ability to produce at either end of the rink in the NHL.

Shut up about offer sheeting Mitch Marner. It’s not going to happen

Shut up about offer sheeting Mitch Marner. It’s not going to happen Everyone needs to knock it off. For the past two years Toronto Maple Leafs fans have been told they have to worry about being able to keep all three of William Nylander, Auston Matthews, and Mitchell Marner. After they added John Tavares this summer, that talk ramped up. The one common item in all the rhetoric and fear mongering was the idea that an offer sheet was going to be used. Their only point to bringing up offer sheets is to cash in on the worries of Maple Leafs fans, and believe me, you only stoop to that when you have an empty schedule and need to get some kind of content out.

The Edmonton Oilers will give a qualifying offer to pending restricted free agent Jesse Puljujarvi Lehto told Spector last week that if Puljujarvi isn’t traded to another NHL franchise, he would play in Puljujarvi has 17 goals and 37 points in 139 NHL games, and will be ready for next season

Jesse Puljujarvi Bio. Along with impressive skills, Puljujarvi brought promise to the Edmonton Oilers. Born in Alvkarleby, Sweden, where he lived until he was 4 years old, Puljujarvi played parts of two seasons for Oulun Karpat in the Finnish Elite League before being drafted by Edmonton.

  • Despite a long playoff run with the Toronto Marlies, Josh Jooris won’t re-sign in North America. The veteran forward has inked a three-year contract with Lausanne HC in Switzerland. Jooris, 28, scored 55 points in his 213-game NHL career, including an impressive rookie season with the Calgary Flames, but will take his talents overseas. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent after his one-year, $650K contract with the Maple Leafs expired this summer.
  • Not only did Kunlun Red Star confirm that Andrej Sustr will be heading to the KHL next season, but also that Anaheim Ducks prospect Trevor Murphyhas signed a two-year deal. The 23-year-old Murphy was acquired by the Ducks last December and played 37 games for the San Diego Gulls this season, registering 18 points. An undrafted defenseman, he made his NHL debut with the Arizona Coyotes in 2017-18 and had three points in eight games. Set to be a restricted free agent this summer, the Ducks can retain his exclusive negotiating rights by issuing him a qualifying offer.

Hurricanes could trade surplus defensemen as NHL Draft approaches.
The Carolina Hurricanes have had a surplus of good, young defensemen for years now. Just about every time a team was looking for help on the blue line, the Hurricanes were linked as a possible trade target. That’s what happens when you have potentially eight top-four options in the organization (including Haydn Fleury and Jake Bean), all 28 or younger. Now, even after the group finally came together and showed what it could do in the playoffs, the Hurricanes are still being targeted as a team that might want to move a defenseman.
