Elliotte Friedman of Sportsnet: The Dallas Stars defensemen Miro Heiskanen and Jamie Oleksiak are entering the final year of their deals. The Stars will try to trade a salary this offseason, though they may have some issues due to trade protections. Pending UFA goaltender Anton Khudobin has likely priced himself out of Dallas. Ben Bishop‘s salary drops to $3.5 million for three more years and his no-trade becomes a partial not trade.
Not confirmed but there is talk that the Carolina Hurricanes could be willing to a eight-year contract extension for Andrei Svechnikov worth $7.
