Worcester Signs Yanni Gourde

Worcester signs Yanni Gourde to a 1 year contract.

Looked good in the 1 game I saw him. He is a scorer so now we only need 3 or 4 more.

Considering the way San Jose has thrown around NHL contracts to players that probably shouldn't have gotten them in the past I'm a little surprised this is an AHL deal...

AHL contract for next season...in theory an NHL team could swoop in and offer him a two-way NHL contract, but it happens so infrequently one could get away with saying it never happens.

Nope, SJ could have signed him to an NHL deal and didn't.

Only think I can guess is if they signed him to an NHL deal it would need to be three seasons and they may not want to commit to him that long if his size turns out to be an issue...based on what I saw it shouldn't be, the kid can play and he can play tough if he needs to.

I hope he earns an NHL deal with the Sharks. Since it's not an NHL deal, was it the Worcester FO that decided to sign him or do these deals come from SJ?

Everything roster related originates in SJ...

Haha no, I mean at a flash, it looks like the Blues version. Obviously I realize pretty fast because you're the only one with one.

He's not a prospect because San Jose doesn't own his rights.

Possible this is just a contract limit issue and they made a deal with him with the AHL contract until after July 1st? I'm a little unclear on how all that works.

Is it possible that he gets more than $62.5k (max AHL salary on an ELS) on this deal? I know they allow 10% of the ELS NHL salary to be paid out as a signing bonus, but a higher wage might be more enticing.

Despite the way the CBA is worded contracts for next season don't count, so SJ could have signed him to an NHL deal and didn't.
