Should we all feel sorry for Don Cherry now?
The irrascible, ornery ex-Boston Bruins coach and Hockey Night in Canada intermission icon will most definitely not like this news: the Minnesota Wild announced on Thursday that restricted free agent winger/pest extrordinare/hits leader Cal Clutterbuck has signed a new 3-year contract, keeping him with the only organization he has ever played for thru 2013. The Minneapolis Star-Tribune reports that the deal is worth $4.2 million over 3 seasons, a cap-friendly $1.4 million per season.
Clutterbuck, who last season set a new NHL record for hits (356), has over 250 this season, a season which will resume for the Wild next Wednesday evening when they meet the Calgary Flames at the Pengrowth Saddledome.
