According to multiple sources, the Senators are not expected to re-sign forwards Ales Hemsky and Milan Michalek.
Hemsky, 30, was acquired from the Edmonton Oilers on Mar. 5, and registered four goals and 13 assists for 17 points in 20 games with the Senators.
It's believed the Senators have already decided not to re-sign Hemsky, while unless Michalek is willing to take a significant pay cut, he won't be back next season, either.
Michalek, 29, is coming off a six-year, $26 million contract and will become an unrestricted free agent July 1, along with Hemsky, if unsigned.
Senators GM Bryan Murray has been in touch with Michalek's agent, Allan Walsh, but the two sides remain far from a deal.
