New-Jersey-Devils-Kevin-Bahl

Good morning, my name is Andrew Fantucchio. It is Tuesday, August 1, and here’s what I’m focused on around the NHL today.

Kevin Bahl, Devils Ink Two-Year Contract:

Kevin Bahl has re-signed with the  New Jersey Devils on a new two-year contract worth $1.05 million per season.

Kevin Bahl, Devils Ink Two-Year Contract Extension

Only 23 years old, Bahl played in a career-high 42 games last season and began to assert himself on the Devils’ blueline in the latter half of the year.

Minnesota Signs Goalie Gustavsson to New Contract:

The Minnesota Wild signed goalie Filip Gustavsson to a three-year contract with an average annual value of $3.75 million per season.

The new deal helps the two sides avoid a potential salary arbitration hearing.

Gustavsson, 25, played in 39 games for Minnesota last season, posting a 22-9-7 record, including three shutouts, with a .931 save percentage and a 2.10 goals against average.

More From National Hockey Now:

Pittsburgh: Jake Guentzel will be a central piece in the Penguins’ core post-Crobsy, Malkin and Letang. That is unless they trade him.

Vegas: The Golden Knights enter the upcoming season as defending Stanley Cup champions and have plenty on their to-do list.

Colorado: A deep dive into the numbers that show why Nathan MacKinnon continues to be one of the NHL’s elite at 5-on-5.

San Jose: The re-building Sharks have been clear about the type of player they want in free agency, and there’s a few more on the market that fit the bill.
