2014 NHL Free Agents - Brooks Orpik

Brooks Orpik, currently with the Pittsburgh Penguins, will become an unrestricted free agent after his contract expires in 2014, if not re-signed by Pittsburgh prior to the deadline, or traded.  The big defenseman, originally from California, has spent his entire NHL career, which began with the 2002-03 season, as a member of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

He has been a physical presence on the blue line for the Penguins, while also finding a way to contribute offensively over the years.

Outlook
Orpik will be finishing up a six-year contract valued at $22.5 million according to capgeek.com.  General Manager Ray Shero has re-signed most of his key players before they became free agents, recently.  I would expect the same thing to happen with Brooks Orpik.  He will remain a Penguin, at an AAV close to what he has in his current contract, prior to hitting the free agent market.
