Filip Hronek, Vancouver Canucks Defenseman
Could the Devils and Canadiens pull off a major offseason Hronek's future in Vancouver uncertain. NHL insider reveals target contract figure, raising trade possibility if a deal can't be reached.

The Vancouver Canucks face a crucial decision regarding defenseman Filip Hronek’s future with the team. Hronek, a restricted free agent with arbitration rights, has enjoyed a breakout season and is due for a significant raise from his current $4.4 million AAV.

NHL insider Elliotte Friedman has shed some light on the ongoing contract negotiations. According to Friedman, the “sweet spot” for a potential extension is around $7.5 million AAV. However, if Hronek pushes for a higher number, the situation could get complicated.

Filip Hronek’s Contract Conundrum: Will the Canucks Keep Him?

Hronek’s potential asking price raises questions about affordability for the Canucks. They already have significant salary cap commitments to players like Quinn Hughes, J.T. Miller, and Elias Pettersson. If the Canucks and Hronek cannot find common ground in contract negotiations, the 26-year-old could end up on the trade block this summer.

The uncertainty around Filip Hronek’s future makes him a tantalizing target for rival teams looking to bolster their blue line. A right-shot defenseman with offensive upside, Hronek would be a valuable addition to many contending teams. The Canucks will have a tough choice on their hands – pay the price to keep Hronek or potentially explore a trade that could yield valuable assets in return.
