Major turnaround for Cole Caufield and his new contract: The duration is now known

BY MARCO    JUNE 2, 2023  (1:10 PM)
With Michael Pezzetta being awarded a two-season contract earlier today, now would be a good time to announce Cole Caufield's contract!

Yesterday, Tony Marinaro mentioned that, according to what he was hearing behind the scenes, the Canadiens didn't want to pay more than they did for Nick Suzuki, which complicated matters.

JiC also mentioned that in the case of a contract under 8 million, the term would probably be 4 years, which would lead number 22 to complete autonomy.

Now Tony has gone back on his word, as he has new information.


"Cole Caufield contract update:

Yesterday, I reported that I was hearing that Cole Caufield's new contract with the Canadiens would NOT exceed Nick Suzuki's $7.875 million cap hit.

Today: I've just been informed that talks are progressing - all signs point to a 7- or 8-year contract."



This is a major turnaround in the circumstances and is very reassuring.
