At 29 years of ages, he brings even more experience and also management to aid the Hurricanes take the following action.
The Coyotes are still restoring, and also Gostisbehere gets on the in 2015 of his six-year, $27 million agreement, so he likely would not have actually re-signed with Arizona in the offseason. It exercises for both groups as the Yotes build up an additional draft choice, and also the Hurricanes get a top-level defenseman for a playoff run.
