Is Holtby’s career over?

Jan Holland of Russian Machine Never Breaks: Frank Serravalli on his DFO Rundown podcast said UFA goaltender Brenden Holtby’s playing career may be over.

Braden Holtby is unlikely to play next season, his career may be over.”

Holtby has been dealing with a nagging lower-body injury for most of last year, making his last appearance on March 4. He tried to train after 10 days, but left after 10 minutes. He was then placed on LTIR, but was able to return to the ice before the end of the year.

The Senators were close to acquiring Cassiano and DeAngelo

Everyday feeling: Frank Serravalli reported that the Edmonton Oilers were close to a trade Zak Cassian Senator of Ottawa. The meaning of the defender Michael Del Zotto would be part of the trade.

Everyday feeling: Seravali confirmed the Ottawa Senators were “very close” to signing the defenseman Anthony De Angelo from the Carolina Hurricanes.

Avalanche has a lot of pieces in the air

Adrian Dater of Colorado Hockey now: I believe that the Colorado Avalanche will re-sign the contract Valery Nichushkin until July 13.

I believe the Avalanche and pending UFA defenseman Josh Manson are still talking, but there may be other moving parts.

One piece they could look at trading is defenseman Samel Girard and his $5 million cap hit. That might make room for Manson. There weren’t actually any rumored trade scenarios involving Girard. Can’t see how Manson was brought back and Girard is still on the books.

Manson will likely see what’s on the open market and return to the Avalanche to see if they can match it.

Haven’t heard anything about a Andrey Burakovsky expansion. Don’t think he’s coming back.

Don’t believe Lavina and Jack Johnson talked. If they still have money and a roster spot open, they could offer him a contract eventually. Darren Helm may be in a similar situation.

Resignation Arthur Lehkonen could cost between $3.5 million and $4 million.
