The NHL free agent market opens on Friday, Oct. 9.
The Calgary Flames have made another addition to the club, this time adding right winger Josh Leivo to the team on a one-year 875k deal. Leivo joins the team coming off a career-best but injury shortened season with the Vancouver Canucks. Leivo had seven goals and 19 points with the Canucks through 36 games this past season, but a fractured kneecap before Christmas ended his season.
The Impact: Make no mistake, there is zero chance Schultz takes over the power play from John Carlson. What this signing does do is alleviate some pressure off Carlson, who led the league with 4:01 PP TOI/GP. Both are right handed, so there's almost zero chance Carlson gets pulled into the black hole that is Schultz at even strength.
