No Qualifying Offer For Evgeny Svechnikov

from Ansar Khan of Mlive,

The Detroit Red Wings might be parting ways with Evgeny Svechnikov, their first-round pick from 2015 who has battled through injuries and struggled to get a foothold in the NHL.

The Red Wings will not tender a qualifying offer to Svechnikov by Monday’s 5 p.m. deadline, making him an unrestricted free agent.

They are open to signing him to a two-way contract if he doesn’t sign elsewhere when free agency begins on Wednesday, Svechnikov’s agent, Todd Diamond, said.

“We’ll see what things look like (in the market) and regroup from there,” Diamond said. “It’s been a while (for Svechnikov in the organization), he’s had a lot of injuries. He could have gotten a new opportunity last season. He played hurt. It didn’t happen.

“Maybe it’ll work out for the best and he’ll get a chance to compete with another team.”

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977. No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y. Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation. There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature. Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
