He will earn $708,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 if he plays in the minors. He was limited to 18 appearances last season after missing 35 games with a concussion and the final 28 contests of the year with a head injury. Cumiskey has some offensive upside though and he is expected to attend training camp where he will compete for a spot in the opening day lineup.

According to his agent, restricted free agent Kyle Cumiskey has completely recovered from his concussion.

Cumiskey was given a qualifying offer by the Avalanche, but the two sides have been unable to agree to terms. Cumiskey played in just 18 games last season and he's yet to play in more than 61 NHL contests in a single campaign. He's worth keeping an eye on, but we can't recommend drafting him in standard leagues.
