Cody Franson doesn't expect to be back with the Chicago Blackhawks next season.
Franson will be testing the UFA market this summer, but after being unable to maintain a spot in the NHL with Chicago in 2017-18, he'll be moving on to a different franchise. "I'm quite certain I won't be back next year," Franson said. "This year obviously didn't go the way that I envisioned it going and they're in a situation with their group right now where they're in kind of a transitional period. They've got some young guys that started to get some experience this year and they've got all those guys signed up for next year, so I'll be looking for something different I think unless something changes. Obviously it's not like my door's closed, but I don't see it going that way." If there's a silver lining, it's that Franson has done great in the AHL. He had nine goals and 28 points in 37 AHL regular season games and has added another four goals and eight points in seven playoff contests. May 18 - 8:40 AM
