2014 NHL Free Agents - Brian Gionta

Brian Gionta, winger for the Montreal Canadiens, is currently set to become an unrestricted free agent in July of 2014.  The diminutive winger from Rochester, New York will turn 35 during the 2013-14 NHL season.  Gionta has continued to be a goal-scorer for the Canadiens, notching 14 tallies with 12 assists in the lockout-shortened 48 game season during 2012-13.

Gionta's current cap hit is $5 million annually, as he finishes up his 5 year, $25 million contract for Montreal.

Outlook
If Gionta remains healthy, and continues to produce on offense, his services will most certainly be in demand by the Canadiens as well as several other NHL teams.  The team that drafted him, the New Jersey Devils, would certainly be a contender for a deal, if Gionta elects free agency.  He won't get too concerned with his contract, as he's already stated that he will let his agent handle that matter.  Gionta keeps his focus on the ice.
