Goaltender Alex Auld has signed with the Canadiens for a million bucks.
This is neither earth-shattering nor monumental. Auld is a journeyman goalie who’s played for seven other teams before becoming a Hab, and has been a back-up throughout his career. I recall him mostly as a very ordinary netminder while with the Canucks.
What does this mean? Is Dan Ellis now out of the picture? Will it be the netminding duo of Price and Auld next season? I need to phone Pierre Gauthier and have him explain this to me.
This is not something that is making me giddy and overcome by excitement.
Here’s the lowdown on Alex Auld for what it’s worth.
