Note: Cody Hodgson Signs A Six-Year Deal

Cody Hodgson has signed a six-year deal with the Buffalo Sabres that Nick Kypreos says has a cap hit of $4.25 million per season.

It is similar to the contract Adam Henrique signed that is also for six-years and has a cap hit of $4 million.

Hodgson has 77 points in 139 games and had 34 points in 48 games last season.

Henrique has 67 points in 117 games.

Nazem Kadri signed a two-year deal worth $2.9 million per season last night.

Adam Rotter: Derek Stepan is the most accomplished player of the three having scored more points (140) than any of two of the three have scored combined. Kadri is most similar in terms of points per game and his is the route the Rangers want to take. Henrique and Hodgson got their deals from teams that aren’t up against the cap while the Rangers and Leafs have fewer dollars to play with.
