Capfriendly confirmed the contract details for Lindholm, and Ozhiganov. They signed identical 1-year contracts with an AAV of $1,775,000 ($925,000 salary + $850,000 performance bonuses).

The interesting thing about these deals is that they also both contain a 'European Assignment' clause. That means they can choose to return to Europe if they are not on the NHL roster. There aren't any specific details about them right now, but something to keep in mind for later.

The European Assignment clause is a nice deal for all parties. Thankfully their bonuses are both Type A only, as we still have one more year of Matthews' Type B bonus potential to ride out.

The bonus cushion cap is 7.5% of the max cap (e.g. 5.6M-6M if we have an 75-80M cap).

Max Bonuses currently on contract:
Matthews: 2.85M
Marner: 0.850M
Lindholm: 0.850M
Ozhiganov: 0.850M
Rosen: 0.850M
Borgman: 0.850M
T. Moore: 0.850M
Liljegren: 0.400M
Nielsen: 0.233M
Lindgren: 0.183M
Marchment: 0.183M
Brooks: 0.183M
Timashov: 0.165M
Bracco: 0.083M

Matthews, Marner are guaranteed. Assuming Lindholm and Ozhiganov are on the NHL roster, that's 5.4M of the cushion. There is no room for one of Borgman, Rosen, or Moore on top of that if the cap stays under 80M.

This gives a leg up for Dermott (pretty much a lock) and Grundstrom as NHL options as they have no bonuses to worry about.
