RFA Updates 2019

Mitch Marner

Since this will likely be the hot topic of the preseason we will provide updates as they become available on the RFA market, big and small:

Friday Sept 13th

    • Friday the 13th bad luck?  Not if you’re Mitch Marner who got PAID!  Leafs’ start F scored a six year deal worth $10.893 million per year.  This deal is front loaded with signing bonuses:


Market is now set… buckle up!

Thursday Sept 12th

  • Flyers sign D Ivan Provorov to a six year contract worth $6.75 million per year.  Only major D man left unsigned is Bruins D Charlie McAvoy.

Tuesday Sept. 10th

  • Devils F Pavel Zacha signs a three year deal for $2.25 million per year.  Seems leverage play of agreeing to terms with the KHL worked in his favor.

Monday Sept. 9th

  • Blue Jackets D Zach Werenski has agreed to a 3 year bridge deal worth $5 million per year.  Not exactly helping with market setting, but it is one less RFA d-man on the market.
  • Devils RFA Pavel Zacha has agreed to terms with Avangard of the KHL on a one year deal.  As some have pointed out this could be leverage as the report specifically says Agreed to terms and not Signed a contract.  Wait and see I guess.
