A position with the CH does not spark the interest of a former goaltender

Cristobal Huet was a member of the Montreal Canadiens between 2005 and 2008, just before the great outbreak of Carey Price.

During his time in Montreal, he seduced Quebecers by offering a ton of colossal and imperial performances as evidenced by his efficiency percentage of 920% during his 117 games with the team.

Today, at the age of 46, he is coach of the goalkeepers of the Lausanne Club in the Swiss League and he enjoys this function greatly. But, by the way, this type of position with the Montreal Canadiens might interest him?

Nicolas Cloutier, from TVA Sports, spoke to the Canadiens' former goalkeeper by telephone and went fishing to ask him that question. Here is Cristo's response on this topic.

"For the moment, I don't watch that much. I'm good in Switzerland. I'm trying to refine my new job as a goaltender coach. I learn, I try to be better. We will see in a few years if the opportunity presents itself and if I want it when my children are older.»

He doesn't look like a guy who wants to come back to Montreal and take over the coaching of the goalies.

By the way, he also confided about the relationship he had with Carey Price during his stay with the team.

"I had a good relationship with him. He was younger than me and I already had a family, but we helped each other. He's a really good guy. I have a lot of respect for him. I ran into him maybe five years ago when I was with my son at a tournament in Quebec, but otherwise I have no contact with him.»

In short, he no longer has any contact with Carey, but he has a huge respect for number 31, who has impressed him by his technique, his vision of the game and his calm.
