No, this isn't a "Where's Waldo" quiz; everyone knows that the Blackhawks had to off-load Cristobal Huet's contract somewhere for salary-cap reasons, and that he wound up signing to play for a Swiss team.â†µâ†µ
But how's he doing in Europe? He told ESPN Chicago:
"Things are not bad," Huet told ESPN.com on Thursday over the phone from Switzerland where he's now playing goal for Fribourg-GottÃ©ron in an arena that holds 7,000 people.â†µâ†µ
Huet went on to say that he'd like to come back to the NHL, but that doesn't seem likely -- he's 35 and the Blackhawks are also on the hook for paying him the same $5.625 million next year as well. He can't be too unhappy about that, or this:â†µâ†µ
While he's a native of France, Huet married a Swiss woman, so the move made sense on the personal side of things. He also obtained his Swiss passport earlier this week.â†µâ†µâ†µ
â†µ"Well, I'm home every night and sleeping in my bed," he said.
So there's that, then. Enjoy, Cristobal.
