Agent: Daiglerethinks career
TORONTO -- Alexandre Daigle, who has not lived up to expectations since being the top draft pick in 1993, is leaning toward taking a year off, a story on the Hockey News' Web site says.
"He's going through a period of reflection," Daigle's agent, Pat Brisson, said in the story at www.thn.com. "He's not sure he wants to play. He wants to be passionate about his game. He wants to be happy. He doesn't want to cheat himself or any team that signs him."
Daigle, 25, said he will "have something to say" this week.
Daigle became an unrestricted free agent July 1 after the New York Rangers didn't re-sign him. He had eight goals and 26 points in 58 games last season before being sent to the Rangers' American Hockey League affiliate, Hartford, where he had 19 points in 16 games.
After Ottawa made him the top pick in '93, Daigle struggled through most of five seasons before unproductive stints in Philadelphia and with the Lightning. He has 100 career goals and 241 points in 459 games.
AVALANCHE: Coach Bob Hartley has agreed to a one-year contract extension through 2001-02. Terms were not disclosed.
Hartley led the Avalanche to the Western Conference final in each of his first two seasons and won back-to-back division titles.
