Alex Goligoski

Post by gopher5 » Fri May 04, 2007 11:33 pm

Does amnyone know the current status of Alex Goligoski (Whether he's going pro or staying at U. MN)? I thought for sure he was going to leave becasue Pittsburgh will lose his rights if they don't sign him. As of now i'm not sure becasue of his recent shoulder injury.

He hasn't signed yet. The shoulder injury may have delayed any decision he makes. Rumor is he is not a big fan of the Pittsburgh organization and would have turned pro after last season if his rights were owned by a different team. That's just hearsay though.

Pittsburgh doesn't lose his rights if he doesn't sign. They don't expire until August after his senior season.

For Gopher fans, it would be nice if he stayed. He anchors that power play as well as anyone. Which ever way it ends up, I hope it is the right move for him. He is a classy player and I wish him the best.

Any word on what he plans to do yet? I thought he was going to let both teams know his intentions a couple weekends ago????

Alex signed July 11th. He will make 500K his first year and 600k his second year with incentives making it possible for 2.5 million. He is expected to play at least 1 year in the AHL. Good luck to Alex, definately the Gophers loss.

As long as his shoulder heals, he will have a great year.
