He took a pay cut. My bet is DW told him "You have the best shot at getting an NHL cup-of-coffee the lower the salary you have" and so he took a near league minimum. Similar to what Mike Moore did. Makes sense to only be one year if that is the case.

If he has a good season and earns an NHL spot, they will renegotiate it next season.
