It didn’t take long for Johnny Gaudreau to set the tone on how he’ll handle one of the biggest questions looming over the Calgary Flames this season: his future. Two queries into his season-opening availability, the 28-year-old winger was asked how he’d characterize negotiations with the team to possibly extend his stay in Calgary beyond this season. “That’s between my agent and Tre (GM Brad Treliving), and I probably won’t answer many questions for you throughout the year on that,” said Gaudreau, a pending unrestricted free agent who has one year left on a deal paying him $6.75 million annually.
