Big development in Rafaël Harvey-Pinard's future contract

One thing is certain: RHP belongs to the NHL and, barring a major turnaround, he will no longer play in the AHL.
There are now two options for his next contract. A bridge contract or a long-term deal. There are pros and cons to both.
With a long-term contract, the salary would be fairly modest, admittedly, but it does offer him a job guarantee. According to Arpon Basu, the young man is confident enough to sign for the short term and earn a better salary later on.
Rafaël would therefore be opting for a bridge contract, and would be banking on his hockey skills to boost his value over the next few years. It's all to his credit!
A little Canadiens offseason primer with some information gathered at the combine and elsewhere. His name is sadly missing here, but @MAGodin was a huge part of the reporting process: https://t.co/vEDYbl7dPf- Arpon Basu (@ArponBasu) June 14, 2023
