  • Flames' Nick DeSimone: Heads north of border

    DeSimone signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Flames on Wednesday, Pat Steinberg of Sportsnet 960 The Fan reports.

    DeSimone lands with his fourth organization in the last three-and-a-half months, so he'll be hoping to stay awhile. The defenseman had 11 points in 22 games between AHL teams in San Jose and Rochester last season. He was most recently traded from the Golden Knights to the Rangers as part of the Brett Howden deal ahead of the Kraken expansion draft. DeSimone will likely begin 2021-22 with AHL Stockton while he awaits a potential NHL debut.

  • Rangers' Nick DeSimone: Dealt to Rangers

The 26-year-old blueliner is a pending unrestricted free agent and isn't expected to be signed by the Rangers, so he'll likely be looking for work elsewhere this offseason.

  • Golden Knights' Nick DeSimone: Traded Monday

    DeSimone will join the Golden Knights from the Sharks on Monday after being included as part of the three-team trade that saw Mattias Janmark also head to Vegas.

    DeSimone is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason, so his inclusion in the deal may not have a long-term impact on the Golden Knights. Undrafted out of Union College, the 26-year-old defenseman has yet to get into an NHL game, playing exclusively with AHL San Jose for which he has logged 190 games and tallied 26 goals and 65 helpers.

    DeSimone inked a two-year, two-way contract with San Jose on Thursday worth $1.4 million at the NHL level, CapFriendly reports.

    DeSimone went undrafted coming out of Union College, but spent the past two seasons with the Barracuda. In 65 appearances last year, the blueliner notched 14 goals and 32 assists.

    DeSimone received a qualifying offer from the Sharks prior to Tuesday's deadline.

    DeSimone was AHL San Jose's most productive blueliner in terms of offense last season, racking up 14 goals and 46 points in 65 games, so it's no surprise that the organization would like him to stick around. However, at this point there's no reason to believe he'll have a regular role with the big club in 2019-20.
