Cam Neely: NHL ‘Looking At Critical Dates’ Such As July 1 Free Agency


Bruins fans, understandably, are anxious about the return of the NHL season. Especially with Boston being in first place when the league paused operations March 12.

They’re also probably keeping a close eye on Torey Krug, who is set to become a free agent July 1.

The defenseman has expressed interest in returning the Black and Gold, and noted earlier this month that he hoped he hadn’t played his final game a Bruins uniform. General manager Don Sweeney also shared the same sentiments.

But with the season halted, questions have come about regarding Krug, and other soon-to-be free agents, whose contracts expire in July.

Bruins president Cam Neely held a virtual town hall for season-ticket holders Thursday and noted the NHL is “looking at critical dates” and figuring out how to handle those contracts.

“They’ve got some work to do … to how to adjust those properly,” he said.

It certainly will be interesting to see how this all pans out.
