Kyle Dubas are starting to close in on their team for next year, covering everything but the big dog (Mitchell Marner). They’ve reportedly agreed to terms with Kasperi Kapanen on a three-year deal, traded Patrick Marleau to the Carolina Hurricanes, and have now reportedly agreed to an extension with Andreas Johnsson for four years at a cap hit between $3.25 million and $3.5 million according to a report from the draft floor:

Johnsson shot 15.4% this season on 130 shots, scoring 20 goals. He also put up 23 assists (13 primary assists) playing on all four lines. His 5v5 impact was good, 54% shot attempts, 51% shots, 54% scoring chances. Four years takes Johnsson from his age-25 season (November birthdate) through to his age-28 season, also known as his late prime. The contract buys one of Johnsson’s UFA seasons as well.
