Major last-minute news concerning Alexis Lafrenière

Published August 11, 2023 at 1:05 PM

It's getting to be a long haul for Alexis Lafrenière. While negotiating a contract for the first time, the young Quebecer is involved in all kinds of rumors, including an offer sheet. In

The Rangers have just under 3 million under the salary cap to come to terms with Alexis, which complicates matters. It's also for this reason that an offer sheet would be very possible, while other teams could offer a little more for Laffy. The Rangers would be hard-pressed to match.

Present at the Bergeron-Gagné Classic in Quebec City on Thursday, Lafrenière commented on his situation, and from what we understand, an agreement between him and the Rangers is imminent.

Yes, it's coming. My agent and the Rangers are in discussions and I hope it will be settled in the next few weeks. I love playing there, and it would be super cool to continue.

That's what the National League is all about. You have to be patient sometimes, it takes a little longer. I'm really looking forward to re-signing." - Alexis Lafrenière

We hope he'll settle quickly, but one thing's for sure: an offer sheet seems less and less likely in his case. He should still be a member of the Rangers this year.

For your information, Laffy played for the Canadiens during the Bergeron-Gagné Classic. He looks good in a red-and-white uniform!
