Benoit Pouliot laughs about a big contract he signed thanks to Kent Hughes, and it's making the rounds on the web

Monday was the first trade deadline for Kent Hughes. It's safe to say that he did very well as he managed to get the most for Artturi Lehkonen, Brett Kulak and Andrew Hammond. The new GM was congratulated by many, including his former client Benoit Pouliot, for these great deals.

The former NHLer took to Twitter to praise Hughes in a funny way. He said that his former agent got him a five-year contract after a 35-point season, and that he was a great person.


"Happy for Kent Hughes and all he's done so far as general manager. Good for the Tricolor. People are surprised at how well he's done on schedule. I'm not surprised... I just want to say that the man got me a 5 year contract after a 35 pts season haha! He is first and foremost a great human being! (That says a lot about his abilities)"



On July 1, 2014, after a 36 point season (not 35) with the New York Rangers, Pouliot agreed with the Edmonton Oilers on the terms of a five season contract valued at $20M ($4M AAV). During that contract, he matched that 36-point total only once, during the 2015-16 season,in 55 games. The CH veteran finally retired from hockey after the 2017-2018 season, the last of his contract.
