Peters' Plan? #Pens Free Agent Forward Tells Highland Park Hockey: "All Options Possible"

Friday, June 28, 2013
Warren Peters hasn't left out the possibility of returning.
Heading into the NHL Draft, it's a good time for teams and players to touch base about potential free agency status and have a plan entering Sunday's 2013 Entry Draft.

But more times than not its later rather than sooner that a deal gets done. Teams have until noon on July 5th to negotiate with impending unrestricted free agents (UFA) before they are eligible to sign elsewhere among the other 29 NHL teams.

Speaking with Warren Peters today I got the feeling that, although an agreement hasn't been reached as of late this afternoon, it wouldn't be out of the question for Peters to be re-signed by the Penguins. It doesn't seem like he would have any problems staying in the organization either.

More about Peters and his plans for next season after the jump.

Here's what Peters had to say when I asked him if there was any contact from Pens about next season or if he was planning on heading to free agency to see what offers are out there:

"All options still possible. My agent is working for me. Hopefully something gets done sooner rather than later. Part of the business though."

Many of the NHL UFA players who played for the AHL Penguins in the organization have decided to take their talents overseas. They're actually spread out across the world, geographically at least.

Dylan Reese went to the KHL, followed by the news of Phil Dupuis signing in Hamburg, Germany in the DEL. Today, it was Chad Kolarik signing in Linkoping, Sweden in the SHL. (If you missed it earlier today, I spoke with Kolarik about his new deal and posted his thoughts here.)

For all the latest on the remaining Penguins free agents in the AHL, stay tuned this offseason. If you are on Twitter, you could follow along at @H_P_Hockey for breaking news when a signing occurs.
