An announcement regarding Alex Newhook’s contract is expected early next week.
Only a few details remain to be fine-tuned.

Since the transaction was announced… It’s been radio silence. Let’s not forget that the former Avalanche forward finds himself without a contract for next season. It’s the same situation as last year’s Kirby Dach, and we had to wait until September to see him agree to terms with the organization on a new pact.
But Newhook is part of Kent Hughes’ former agency, which is why I thought it would happen quickly. And it should, if Anthony Martineau’s comments are anything to go by.
The TVA Sports journalist tweeted that an announcement “should be made early next week” regarding his new contract, and that “only a few details remain to be ironed out” before the two parties complete the deal:
I don’t think we had anything to worry about, but seeing the file progress is good news for both the organization and the player.
Now, it will be particularly interesting to see what the terms of his pact will be. The idea of seeing him earn more money than Dach has been discussed, and it’s worth noting that Eric Engels, for his part, sees Newhook landing a contract that could earn him between $3 and $4 million annually.
I don’t hate $3M per season for a quality young player / prospect like Alex Newhook. At $4M per season, I find it a bit steep considering he hasn’t proven anything yet in the NHL.
I’m especially anxious to see the length of the deal. Remember that Dach signed a 4-year contract in September 2022, and I’m expecting the same from Newhook.
– Too bad.

I saw a post about how, unlike other teams, the Habs didn’t have any fun team bonding activities during the development camp.
They did, they went go-karting. pic.twitter.com/iiBaCxjtqK
