The Slovak, who returned to the New York Islanders organization in 2022-23 after playing the first four years of his campaign there, could become free as air on July 13. The full-back, however, is in no rush to sign a contract with one of the 32 teams on the Bettman circuit, or even to make a decision on his future. This decision could only be taken in September.

"He'll spend the summer with his family and judge where he's at physically, where he's at family-wise, and make a decision in September," Chara's agent Matt Keator told the Boston Globe. . There is no press."

Chara has slowed considerably in recent years, having blacked the scoresheet 14 times in 72 games last season. The man with 1,680 games to his name, the seventh-highest total in National League history - and the highest among defensemen - has 680 career points, he who also won the Stanley Cup in 2011, with the Boston Bruins.
