DAL defenceman Trevor Daley has agreed to a 6-year, $19.8M (cap hit of $3.3M annually) extension. NTC kicks in next season.
from Dave Stubbs of the Montreal Gazette,
“There will be a time,” Trevor Daley was saying, “when the streets come calling.” The Dallas Stars defenceman was sitting with Canadiens centreman Glen Metropolit, a friend and idol of youth nine years his senior who, in many ways, had walked the same challenging road to the National Hockey League.
“When that time comes, you’ve got to have the willpower to know what decision you need to make,” Daley continued. “Glennie and I had to make those decisions to get where we are today.
“I’m sure we’ve made some wrong decisions. I know I have along the way. But it’s not an easy thing to do, especially when the streets come calling. You get into that position: ‘Do I run with these guys, or those guys?’ ” Metropolit, 35, and Daley, 26, grew up without privilege, luxury or any sense of entitlement in downtown Toronto’s Regent Park district.
From the Dallas Stars:
The Dallas Stars announced today that the club has signed defenseman Trevor Daley to a three-year contract worth $6.9 million (average of $2.3 million per year) through the 2010-2011 season.
“At just 24 years of age, Trevor continues to grow as a hockey player and we are looking for his game to improve over the next three years,” said Co-General Manager Les Jackson. “He is a valuable member of our hockey club and is a key part to our strong nucleus of younger players.”
