Noah Hanifin's contract is set to expire after this season. As many negotiations go, most expected him to have re-signed prior to the start of this year. As time passed, much speculation regarding his status with the Flames came up.

The Picture is Becoming Clear



It has now been reported by NHL insiders that Hanifin will not be re-signing with the Flames. It appears discussions are a non-starter, and its definite he won't be re-signing.

Frank also says Noah Hanifin is a non starter and definitely not re-signing. #Flames #NHL #NHLTwitter




Where Will Hanifin End Up?



Hanifin's contract is set to expire after this season. With talks obviously stalling and going sour, it's unclear where he might end up and how soon. He does have an 8-team NTC this year, so Calgary's options to deal him are limited. Despite that, it is obviously in their best interest to move the star defenseman for some return rather than have him walk away for nothing next year.

Hanifin has played 598 career games, with 49 goals and 190 assists for 239 points. At 26 years old, he should garner a ton of interest from teams around the league.
