This club lost the Gagarin Cup semi-final to Bob Hartley’s men. So we’re talking about a big club for Weal.
He is 29 years old and has been playing pro for ten years.
Thus, his time in the organization will last a little more than two years (February 2019) … and he will not make history.
He clearly doesn’t want to wait until this summer to see if he can find a contract elsewhere in the NHL. Thus it guarantees playing in the second best league in the world and taking on more responsibilities.
Despite being at Laval, his $ 1.4 million contract isn’t exactly out of reach. The equivalent of $ 325,000 on the CH block. It might not sound like much, but it delayed Cole Caufield’s debut.
In 65 games in Montreal, he collected 25 points, including 12 goals. This season with Rocket he has 22 points (6-16) in 27 games.
Remember, the Canadian / Rocket will lose another player at the hands of KHL: goalkeeper Vasily Demchenko.
