Report: Jakob Silfverberg close to contract extension with Ducks

Yardbarker

An encouraging note for Ducks fans, especially during a stretch without much good news in Anaheim, is that Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports that term is the only thing separating the team and winger Jakob Silfverberg from agreeing to a contract extension.

While that means the two sides are still apart, it was the cap hit that was the major roadblock to a new deal. Due to Anaheim’s overall lack of cap space and the restrictions of “tagging,” many speculated that Silfverberg’s desired salary would be too difficult for the Ducks to manage.

The fact that term remains “the final hurdle,” as Friedman puts it, would seem to indicate that the dollars have been agreed upon and the odds of a new contract getting done are better than not.
