Tyler Kennedy is hoping to latch on with another team, but he's worried about his chances of finding a new home.
"I hope I get something, but I don’t know if I will," Kennedy said. "That’s the hardest thing. If you’re doing all this work and you don’t know if you’re going to play … you can’t really beg someone to sign you." The 30-year-old spent last season with the New Jersey Devils and scored three goals and 16 points in 50 games. He may have to accept a PTO. Tue, Aug 16, 2016 08:41:00 AM
