Nathan McIver, Ty Wishart and Jon Landry can all be released, but based on the coaching staffs camp invites, I have to believe Landry is our top AHL defenseman in their eyes, and that they will try to retain him.

We will likely try to sign, at minimum, Andrey Pedan, maybe Scott Mayfield.

Bottom line: Unless we deal Aaron Ness, I don't see room for Kichton.
I can't see that happening for two reasons. The first is everyone else knows he is a significant injury risk, so his value will be next to nothing. The second reason is it would mean Garth admitting he threw away a whole bunch of picks on a bad choice. Since Garth has allowed his ego to influence/cloud his better judgement I'd say CdH is here to stay, or until he injures out for good.
