There has been a lot of significant signings across the league this off-season. However, one major name remains unsigned: Mike Hoffman.
The Canadian winger is widely considered the best player still available on the market. The 30-year-old led all free agents in goals this season and has netted 169 across his six NHL years.
While he should garner a lot of interest in normal years, he’s struggled to find a winner with many teams facing salary cap issues. According to Pierre Lebrun, several teams have given him offers, but all of them are bargain deals.
His agent had this to say about the situation: “Mike has been one of the most consistent goal-scorers the last six seasons and the last two were his best. More importantly, Mike, like every great scorer, is willing to be patient and look for the right opportunity.”
It will be interesting to see if a team offers him what he deserves. Hoffman could become an excellent top six forward on most teams and help anyone in a championship push. We will keep following his case.
