A day after sending goaltender Matt Murray to the Toronto Maple Leafs, the Ottawa Senators replaced him by acquiring Cam Talbot from the Minnesota Wild.< /p>
In return, general manager Pierre Dorion gave up another doorman, Swede Filip Gustavsson. He played 18 games for Ottawa this season, posting a 5-12-1 record and a .892 save percentage.
Talbot, meanwhile, reportedly expressed his displeasure at seeing Marc- André Fleury initial a new two-year contract with the Wild. GM Bill Guerin later assured that he wanted to keep the services of his two goaltenders, but finally turned around.
A 35-year-old Ontarian, Talbot had an excellent campaign with the Minnesota team in 2021-22. He posted a 32-12-4 record and a .911 save percentage. Next year, he will complete the last season of an agreement earning him $3.67 million annually.
Gustavsson will become a restricted free agent at the end of the next campaign and his salary will weigh only for $825,000 on payroll.
Recall that the “Sens” also acquired sniper Alex DeBrincat from the Chicago Blackhawks before the last draft.
