Minor news, in both senses of the word...
Zajac gets a 2 year deal, two-way, right above league minimum in the NHL, less than $100k in the AHL.
Sestito also gets a 2 year deal. 125k in the AHL each season - now that re-entry waivers are gone, we'll see more players earning more than $105k as AHLers on two-way contracts.
I'm conflicted - on the one hand, good for Darcy, he's worked really hard, on the other, you're only allowed 50 NHL contracts, why give one to a guy who's at best a 3rd line AHLer. And of course, Tim Sestito could be the worst non-facepuncher to play 50 or more NHL games for a non-expansion team, he is just not an NHLer.
Albany now shaping up a bit more:
Something like this. Other possibles include Myles Bell, Graham Black, and Ben Thomson. Still, NJ has 45 contracts now, so they can't give out many more.
