Where Will DeBrincat and Kane End Up After NHL Free Agency?

  • Alex DeBrincat has -150 odds to stay in Ottawa for the 2023-24 season.
  • Patrick Kane has +150 odds to sign a contract with the New York Rangers.

LAS VEGAS – The 2023 NHL season is officially over, as the Golden Knights lifted the Stanley Cup in Vegas. With this conclusion, the attention has now shifted to NHL free agency, where many teams are expected to make a splash.

However, bettors may be able to make the most money at USA online sportsbooks by wagering on players to remain right where they are for the 2024 season.

Alex DeBrincat Next Team Odds

  • Ottawa Senators -150
  • Detroit Red Wings +325
  • Vegas Golden Knights +500
  • Florida Panthers +500
  • Nashville Predators +750
  • Dallas Stars +750

Even though the Senators officially filed for a club-elected arbitration, it is likely that DeBrincat stays in Ottawa. Only 3% of arbitrations over the past three summers have resulted in an actual hearing.

As the seventh youngest team in the NHL in 2023, the Senators could use some veteran presence, as DeBrincat looks to play his seventh season in the league. In 2023 for the Sens, he played all 82 games and recorded the third most points in a season in his career at 66. It is hard to imagine that the Senators would look to give up DeBrincat, after giving up three total picks in the first and second rounds only a year ago.

Patrick Kane Next Team Odds

  • New York Rangers +150
  • Vegas Golden Knights +275
  • Chicago Blackhawks +325
  • Detroit Red Wings +500
  • Edmonton Oilers +500
  • Washington Capitals +500

Patrick Kane, another former Blackhawk, is favored to stay with the New York Rangers but NHL online sportsbooks have longer odds for him to stay than for the DeBrincat situation. Kane, an unrestricted free agent on July 1, joined the Rangers at the end of the trade deadline in the hopes of helping them make a playoff push.

Kane’s 2023 playoff performance may have been poor with only one goal and five assists in seven games but he was not fully healthy. He ended up having resurfacing hip surgery after the postseason and is not expected to recover until four or six months.

Since NY gave up three picks to acquire Kane, bettors could take the +150 odds for him to sign a contract with the Rangers and be ready to play by November or December of the 2023-24 season. The 34 year old three-time Stanley Cup winner could still serve as very valuable to a NY team that has not made the Stanley Cup Final since 2014.
