Insider Reveals Future for Calgary's Number 1 Defenseman

Not with Hanifin
That rebuild won't be with young star defenseman Noah Hanifin, though, as insider Frank Seravalli reported that he and the club are not getting a deal done to extend his contract.
Time is of the essence to move Hanifin
Hanifin's contract is set to expire after next season. The 26-year-old defenseman should get a decent return for his value, putting up 7 goals and 31 assists for the Flames this past season.
However, with his 8-team NTC, the market for Hanifin is slim. New GM Craig Conroy has his work cut out for him to get Hanifin out of Calgary before he leaves for nothing.
