The NHL will be looking for a new supplier for their uniforms come next season.

Per a report from ESPN, Adidas will not seek to renew their uniform and apparel deal with the league. The company still has two years remaining on a seven year deal.

“The NHL and Adidas look forward to continuing to work closely together over the next two years and to a smooth transition to the new authentic NHL uniform supplier, which will be announced by the NHL at the appropriate time,” the NHL said in a statement.

The NHL has already begun working to find a new partner.

Senators sign Mathieu Joseph

Ottawa Senators forward Mathieu Joseph agreed to terms on a four-year, $11.8 million contract extension Thursday.

Per the Senators, Joseph will receive $2.5 million in 2022-23, $2.7 million in 2023-24 and $3.3 million in each of the next two seasons.

Joseph, 25, recorded 12 points (four goals, eight assists) in 11 games last season with Ottawa after being acquired in a trade with the Tampa Bay Lightning on March 20.

He totaled career highs in assists (18) and points (30) over 69 games last season split with the Lightning and Senators.

“Mathieu’s addition made an immediate positive impact as someone who fit in well with our group,” Senators general manager Pierre Dorion said. “He has high-end speed, a nose for the net and is responsible in his own end. He’s long demonstrated good upside and is someone we’re counting on to have another solid season both in 2022-23 and beyond.”

Joseph had 82 points (41 goals, 41 assists) in 232 career games with the Lightning and Senators. He was selected by Tampa Bay in the fourth round of the 2015 NHL Draft.

Flyers sign Owen Tippet

The Philadelphia Flyers signed forward Owen Tippett to a two-year, $3 million contract on Friday.

Tippett, 23, had four goals and three assists in 21 games with the Flyers last season after being acquired in a March 19 trade with the Florida Panthers.

A first-round pick (10th overall) by Florida in 2017, Tippett has 40 points (18 goals, 22 assists) in 115 games with the Panthers and Flyers.

The Flyers traded Claude Giroux, Connor Bunnaman, German Rubstov and a 2024 fifth-round pick to the Panthers in exchange for Tippett, a 2024 first-round pick and a 2023 third-rounder.
