New Jersey Devils forward David Clarkson won't re-sign without hearing what other teams have to offer beginning Wednesday.
Agent Pat Morris said the Devils made an offer during the NHL Draft over the weekend, but Clarkson wasn't moved to sign it. Instead, he'll be listening to offers Wednesday when teams can reach out and offer deals to the 2005 undrafted free agent.
"(The Devils) put in an offer and that was not signed," Morris told the Bergen Record. "By (Wednesday) teams can call and say what they think of David. We've got an open mind with New Jersey and we've got an open mind with NHL clubs. We know where New Jersey is at today to a level to sign a contract. It was a respected offer that was not signed and we're just moving forward with whatever the timeline is."
Clarkson scored 15 goals in 2012-13 and had 30 in 2011-12.
Devils general manager Lou Lamoriello said the two sides "will certainly talk, and I'll leave it at that."
