The latest on Evander Kane, Colton Orr, Davis Drewiske, the Sedins and more.
WINNIPEG SUN: Jets forward Evander Kane underwent surgery to relieve pressure on a nerve in his left foot.
TORONTO STAR: The Maple Leafs re-signed enforcer Colton Orr to a two-year, two-way deal with an average annual cap hit of $925K at the NHL level.
MONTREAL GAZETTE: The Canadiens re-signed defenseman Davis Drewiske to a two-year, $1.275 million contract extension.
SPORTSNET.CA: The Sedin Twins recently told an interviewer they’ve yet to have contract extension talks with the Canucks, but both are willing to stay. The Sedins will become unrestricted free agents next summer.
SPECTOR’S NOTE: Both are, of course, a package deal, meaning they’ll be re-signed to identical contracts. They’ve more than earned their current deals (five years, $30.5 million), but they’ll be 33 next summer, so it’ll be interesting to see how long their next contracts will be, and for how much.
EDMONTON JOURNAL: Jonathan Willis wonders if new Oilers GM Craig MacTavish could purge the entirety of his predecessor’s bottom-six forwards.
