Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: Contract talks between the Carolina Hurricanes and Dougie Hamilton broke off during the season and he now has permission to talk to other teams. There will be lots of interest.
Would have thought the Philadelphia Flyers would be targeting Hamilton but they may be looking elsewhere. The Seattle Kraken makes sense.
The Kraken have a window before the expansion draft where they can talk to pending free agents.
Rod Brind’Amour and the Carolina Hurricanes have a verbal agreement to remain but he’s demanding that all his staff is brought back.
