File this under “what the hell?”

Apparently, Huet and his absurd $5 million dollar contract may be coming off the Blackhawks’ cap hit for this coming season by loaning him to the Switzerland team Fribourg-Gotteron for one year. A Swiss site (“20 minutes online”) has confirmed the signing although his agent has not. The NHL has cited to the Swiss site’s report in their official annoucement.

So, this isn’t cap circumvention? I suppose they could have sent him to the minors or AHL affiliate and taken the cap off the books that way as well, right? What the Fribourg-Gotteron is going on, you ask?

More to come…
