The day has finally come. The Chicago Blackhawks owe Christobal Huet no more money.
Huet was signed on the first day of free agency in 2008. His four-year deal was worth $22.4 million and along with the contract given to Brian Campbell was a sign the Blackhawks wanted to win again.
Unfortunately for Huet, his stay in Chicago lasted only two seasons. He has spent the last two years on loan to HC Fribourg-Gotteron SA of the Swiss National League A. The reason for this was to relieve the Hawks salary cap issues.
