Cam Atkinson expresses readiness for a new opportunity with 'a lot of juice left' in the tank, hinting at a potential shift in his future.


The 34-year-old veteran forward had a productive season for the Flyers, frequently emerging as a top pickup in NHL fantasy leagues. He recorded 28 points, comprising 13 goals and 15 assists, over the course of 70 games, despite posting a minus-22 rating.

Atkinson's feelings about his position in the team's future remain uncertain, as he navigates his options and evaluates potential opportunities moving forward.


When asked about his potential future on the team he said
"I have one more year on my contract. I know the player I am and I'll never lose sight in how I am and what has made me the player I am today and what has gotten me to this level. I still feel like I have a lot of juice left in the tank for the right situation. I think that question is above my pay grade. Control what I can control."

Atkinson appears pragmatic about the prospect of a change of scenery in the NHL. Despite having one more year on his contract, he maintains confidence in his abilities and believes he still has much to offer to the right team. While acknowledging the uncertainty surrounding his future, Atkinson emphasizes focusing on what he can control and remaining committed to his performance on the ice.

In the event of the Flyers buying out Atkinson's final year, his cap hit would be $2.358 million for the next season and $1.758 million for the following one. This move would result in a savings of $3.5 million on his original cap hit for the upcoming season.

While Cam Atkinson would undoubtedly attract significant interest from teams aiming to bolster their scoring prowess and goal differentials, the future of this promising veteran forward remains uncertain. Only time holds the answers to his next career steps.
