Devils, Palmieri to talk contract in coming weeks
TheFourthPeriod.com

The New Jersey Devils and right wing Kyle Palmieri haven't started contract negotiations, but plan on speaking in the near future, TFP has learned.

Palmieri, 25, is in the final year of his contract and can become a restricted free agent July 1.

He is coming off a three-year, $4.4 million contract he signed while with the Anaheim Ducks, and is expected to receive a significant raise after scoring 30 goals and adding 27 assists for 57 points in all 82 games with the Devils this season.

Palmieri's agent, Steve Bartlett, told TFP he expects to speak with Devils GM Ray Shero when he returns from the World Championships currently being held in St. Petersburg, Russia.

It's unclear what type of contract Palmieri is seeking, though a long-term deal in the five-year range is likely to be requested from the Devils.

The Devils acquired Palmieri from the Ducks on June 26, 2015, on the day of the NHL Draft, in exchange for a 2015 second-round draft pick and a 2016 third-round pick.
