The Blues might be taking a look at the defenseman market

Jeremy Rutherford of The Athletic: The St. Louis Blues blue line will lack Marco Scandella and Scott Perunovich due to injuries. Scandella is out 6 months and Perunovich status isn’t understood yet.

If the Blues require to look externally for blue line assistance, they might rely on the Arizona Coyotes. The Blues have actually been connected to Jakob Chychrun, who might cost a leading possibility, a first-round choice and most likely another young gamer. Reports have trade talks including Chychrun have actually magnified (with numerous groups) and the Blues are keeping track of.

Chychrun is under agreement for 2 more years after this season at a $4.6 million income cap hit. If Scandella and Perunovich go on the LTIR, that would maximize $4.025 million in income cap area.

MacKenzie Weegar desires an extension prior to the start of the season

Eric Francis of Sportsnet: Calgary Flames defenseman MacKenzie Weegar is wanting to get an agreement in location prior to the start of the season so it doesn’t end up being a diversion according to his representative Matthew Ebbs.

“Mack is the supreme group man, and as soon as the season begins he does not wish to be a diversion, and doesn’t wish to be handling this in the media space.

“That’s why our choice is if we can get something done prior to the season, that’s absolutely where our head is at.

“If we can’t, we’re not saying we won’t have any discussions, but we’d prefer to just leave it so there are no team distractions after Oct. 13.”

After the Flames signed Jonathan Huberdeau to his eight-year extension, Weegar informed his representative to begin taking a look at if there was a long-lasting suitable for him.

Justin Faulk (7 years at $6.5 million per) and Hampus Lindholm (8 years at $6.5 million per) are comparables. If Weegar doesn’t sign prior to the season and he has a truly great year, Dougie Hamilton‘s seven-year at $9 million would be the luxury.
