NHL rumours: Jack Campbell, Marc-André Fleury and Josh Manson news

According to our colleague Chris Johnston of TSNthe Toronto Maple Leafs have still not offered future unrestricted free agents Jack Campbell and Ilya Mikheyev contracts.

The Toronto organization has until July 13 to make tough decisions. According to the specialized site CapFriendly, the Leafs have $7.84 million available for the upcoming campaign. They also only have 17 players under contract.

Fleury back with the wild?

According to Darren Dreger, the Minnesota Wild would be interested in bringing Marc-André Fleury back next season. Of course, the wild ones have to do gymnastics; General Manager Bill Guerin owns an area of ​​just $7.38 million.

The three-time Stanley Cup winner was acquired by the Chicago Blackhawks for a second-round draft pick at close of trade.

Guerin will have a busy summer ahead of him. The organization faces 12.74 million salary cap penalties next year due to the contract takeovers of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.

A return to Anaheim for Manson after a Stanley Cup final?

According to Pierre LeBrun, Josh Manson’s days with the Colorado Avalanche may be numbered. The unrestricted free agent has been a key player for the Avalanche since the start of the playoffs and should be free on July 13.

Joe Sakic will have his job cut out once the playoffs are over. Darcy Kuemper, Nazem Kadri and Valeri Nichushkin are all entitled to full autonomy this summer.

The Anaheim Ducks, who traded Manson to Denver in March, are reportedly among teams interested in the 30-year-old defenseman.
