Josh Gorges

Three-year contract worth a reported $3.3 million.

Boone is delighted.

Gorges made $495,000 last season when he proved he deserved a regular spot on the blue line.

This news was posted to the Comments section yesterday by one of our spies in Kelowna.

The official blah-blah:

“Josh established himself as a key member of our defensive squad last season. His reliability and solid
play made him one of our most improved players. He is a young defenseman with a very good work ethic,’’ said
Bob Gainey.
Gorges, 23, will begin his fourth season in the NHL this fall. In 2007-08, he set career highs in games
played (62), points (0-9-9) and shots on goal (41). Gorges took part in the final 52 games of the season and
played in all 12 playoff games.
A native of Kelowna, British Columbia, Gorges was acquired by the Canadiens from the San Jose Sharks
on February 25, 2007 along with a first-round selection in 2007 (Max Pacioretty), in return for Craig Rivet and a
fifth-round selection in 2008. He played 165 career games in the NHL, scoring 19 points (1 goal, 18 assists),
and serving 89 penalty minutes.
