Blue Jackets confident deal with Zach Werenski will be reached before camp

Blue Jackets confident deal with Zach Werenski will be reached before camp The Columbus Blue Jackets are confident they will get a deal done with restricted free agent Zach Werenski before training camp, and so are his representatives. Brian Hedger of the Columbus Dispatch quotes agent Pat Brisson who says it is their “intention” to have a deal in place before camp opens next month, something that will come as a sigh of relief to Blue Jackets fans. Werenski has been one of the most productive defensemen in the league through his first three seasons in the NHL, recording 128 points in 237 games. He is also part of one of the very best pairings around when lining up beside Seth Jones, creating a dynamic young duo for the team to build around.

Brayden Point joins a number of unsigned restricted free-agent forwards, including Toronto’s Mitch Marner, Colorado’s Mikko Rantanen, Calgary’s Matthew Tkachuk, Winnipeg’s Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor. There are several defensemen on the list as well, including Boston’s Charlie McAvoy and Columbus’ Zach Werenski.

There has been no end in sight for any of these players and there remains no timeline as each waits for the first one to sign and set the market, according to Tampa Bay Times’ Diana Nearhos. Most expect the first domino to fall will be Marner, with everyone signing contracts just underneath him.

Red Wings acquire Adam Erne from Lightning for fourth-round pick

Red Wings acquire Adam Erne from Lightning for fourth-round pick The Detroit Red Wings have added to their forward group, acquiring Adam Erne from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for a 2020 fourth-round pick. Erne is currently a restricted free agent who chose not to file for arbitration. The 24-year-old forward finally broke into the NHL on a full-time basis in 2018-19, playing 65 games for the Lightning and racking up 20 points. That production actually included three game-winning goals and he even saw a bit of time on the power play despite averaging just 10:33 of ice time.

Lightning Point is an Australian television teen drama set in the modern day with fantasy elements. It was filmed on location at the Gold Coast in 2011. The half-hour series is produced by Jonathan M. Shiff for Network Ten in association with Nickelodeon and German public broadcaster ZDF.

However, that could change if one of the other players opt to sign first. Point’s deal will be an interesting one on a team that already has quite a few top-paid players. Point tallied 41 goals and 92 points last season.

“It’s a unique marketplace,” said agent Gerry Johannson, who counts Point among his clients. “Everyone is waiting for some clarity.”

So far only two key restricted free agents have signed, both in peculiar circumstances. Jacob Trouba forced a trade to the New York Rangers before finally signing, while Carolina matched Montreal’s offer sheet to Sebastian Aho in early July. In the meantime, the wait continues.

There is more to report from around the Atlantic Division:

Flyers GM 'not concerned with lingering free agents Provorov and Konecny.
The Philadelphia Flyers are like a dozen other teams around the NHL, waiting to have some clarity on whether their top restricted free agents will be suiting up when training camp opens in a few weeks. The Flyers have two top players still without contracts in Ivan Provorov and Travis Konecny, but GM Chuck Fletcher isn’t ready to panic just because they aren’t signed yet. Speaking with Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday, Fletcher explained the Flyers are in the same situation as all of the other teams but isn’t stressing out: © Eric Hartline-USA TODAY SportsWe’ll keep working at it.
