Avs hope to sign Makar ASAP

Ryan S. Clark: Source confirms that the Colorado Avalanche will be making a hard push to get defenseman Cale Makar signed as early as today.

Chris Peters: Makar said after his game last night that he’d talk to his parents and that his future was still up on the air.

Senators hope to sign one of their prospects

John Rodenburg: Ottawa Senators GM Pierre Dorion said on TSN 1200 that they are hopeful to sign prospect Josh Norris this offseason and having him play in the AHL next season.

Prospect Jacob Bernard-Docker will likely return to college for one more season.

Islanders hope to keep their big four UFAs

Brett Cygalis of the NY Post: The New York Islanders have four big pending unrestricted free agents to make decisions on this offseason – Anders Lee, Jordan Eberle, Brock Nelson, and Robin Lehner.

“Evaluation is an interesting word, because it’s every day, it’s ongoing,” Lamoriello said. “As far as evaluation, I know everyone is talking about our free agents. We want to keep them and we’ll try. But they’re focused — and we’re focused — on the task at hand right now, and that’s Game 2.”

Brett Cygalis of the NY Post: Pending free agent Jordan Eberle has two goals in two playoff games so far. He had a bit of down year but did score five goals in their final seven games. The soon to be 29-year old should get plenty of interest if he hits the open market.

“It’s not like I’m going on the ice thinking about my contract. I don’t think about it at all, to be honest,” Eberle said Friday morning. “You kind of just let things happen as they do. I think the biggest thing is when you’re a kid, you dream of playing in the playoffs, and that chance is here. The farther you go as a team, the better it is for the individual.”
