- With a $5 M cap hit, Sergei Gonchar is one of the most expensive d-men in franchise history. The only ones higher are P.K. Subban ($9 M), Andrei Markov ($5.75 M), Mathieu Schneider ($5.75 M), and Roman Hamrlik ($5.5 M).
Weight: 187 lbs
Birthday: July 16, 1986
Hometown: Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada
Acquired: Trade with Nashville, 2010
Draft Team: Calgary
Draft Year: 2004
HW Prospect Rankings: N/A
Strengths: A strong defensive forward that can play on the PK; he also has good speed and can chip in offensively from time to time as well.
Weaknesses: Is somewhat of a streaky forward, he scores in spurts and then goes quiet for a month. Faceoffs are an area that is improving but needs to be better, as does his physical play.
Projected Role: 4th line forward/AHL call-up
