Player Notes

  • Wings, Tatar can't avoid arbitration hearing
    The Detroit Red Wings and Tomas Tatar weren't able to avoid an arbitration hearing.

    Advice: Tatar and the Red Wings have consequently had to make their case to an arbitrator, who will name Tatar's salary within the next 48 hours. Tatar's requested salary was $5.3 million and Detroit countered with $4.1 million, but the arbitrator has the power to determine a middle ground as well. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent next summer and did suggest that if it came to the point where a hearing was necessary then the 2017-18 campaign would likely be his last season with Detroit. The two sides will be able to begin negotiations on a long-term deal in January though. If he's still not signed to an extension by the trade deadline then it wouldn't be surprising to see Detroit trade him. Rotoworld.com Today, 8:44 am

  • Preds, Viktor Arvidsson make salary requests
    The Nashville Predators and Viktor Arvidsson have put in significantly different salary requests.

    Advice: Arvidsson is requesting a one-year, $4.5 million contract for the 2017-18 campaign while the Predators have countered with a two-year request with a total value of $5.5 million. These salary requests were filed ahead of Arvidsson's upcoming arbitration hearing. There is still time for the two sides to work out a compromise. Rotoworld.com Today, 7:22 am
  • Aube-Kubel hopes to do more offensively
    Nicolas Aube-Kubel had a tough time in his first pro campaign, but he's optimistic ahead of the 2017-18 campaign.

    Advice: Aube-Kubel was used to being an offensive force in the QMJHL, but last season he was limited to nine goals and 18 points in 71 AHL contests. "This year, I was maybe more focusing on having a role and trying to do what the coach was asking of me," Aube-Kubel said. "Now that it's all set, I'm going to focus on offensive play. I don't want to put pressure on myself, but last year wasn't my best offensive year. It was also my first year. I think I was trying to learn a lot of it and we'll see what happens next year." The Flyers took him with the 48th overall pick in 2014. Although he probably won't play in the NHL next season, he's worth keeping tabs on. Rotoworld.com Today, 5:27 am

  • Givani Smith can battle around the net
    The Detroit Red Wings are looking at Givani Smith as someone that can battle around the net.

    Advice: Smith has good size at 6-foot-2, 206-pounds and he uses that to his advantage. "He’s a big kid that can skate pretty well, he is physical, goes to the hard areas, and he has a nice little scoring touch, too," Red Wings director of player development Shawn Horcoff said. "I expect him to be really good this year, actually. I really like his work ethic." Smith had 26 goals, 44 points, and 139 penalty minutes in 64 OHL contests last season. He also had a brief stint in the AHL. The 19-year-old is projected to return to the OHL's Guelph Storm for the 2017-18 campaign. Rotoworld.com Today, 2:49 am
