NHL News: Gaudreau, Norris, Radulov, Price, Bryon, Lehner and Patrick
Johnny Gaudreau on leaving Calgary for Columbus

Wes Gilbertson of the Calgary Sun: Johnny Gaudreau didn’t wish to state much about why he wished to leave the Calgary Flames. He did briefly discuss this throughout his opening interview with the Columbus Blue Jackets.

“But Calgary was a special place for me. I was part of their organization for 12 years, and I loved every second I was there. But for me, I think it was just time for me to make a little bit of a change.”

Gaudreau included:

“I always kind of dreamed about playing a tad closer to home,” Gaudreau acknowledged. “But I mean, it didn’t matter where I was signing. Our decision was it was best for us not to go back to Calgary and then we decided to figure out what was the best option for us. Columbus was right up on the top of the list.”

Puck Pedia: Salary breakdown for Gaudreau’s seven-year, $9.75 million per season offer.

Each year he’ll have a wage of $7.75 million and a $2 million finalizing perk.

The initially 5 years he’ll have a no-movement provision, and the last 2 years he’ll have a 10-team trade list.
