Interesting statement from Tomas Tatar about his next team

Published August 13, 2023 at 4:54 PM

Almost halfway through August, Tomas Tatar has still not signed a contract for next season. This is quite surprising, given the quality of player he is.

We're talking about a forward who produces regularly, while being very responsible, as proven by the votes he received for the Selke Trophy last season.

A few days ago, Elliotte Friedman mentioned that the Penguins were interested in Tatar, but we haven't heard anything since.

Tomas Prokop, a Slovak informant with a fairly good reputation in the business, spoke to the former Canadiens forward in Slovakia. Although Tatar didn't give any specific details, he did give some hints.

"Tomas Tatar admitted he was in intensive talks with several clubs. It will probably be a one-year contract; he didn't reveal anything specific, he smiles when asked about Pittsburgh."

So we shouldn't worry about his short-term future in the league. Although the Penguins are a fairly aging team, adding Tatar would definitely be in their plans.

To be continued.
