WE ASKED THE DUCKS…
After signing your first NHL contract, what was you first major purchase?

Mathieu Schneider
It was probably a suit.

Todd Bertuzzi
It was a green Trans Am.

Brian Sutherby
I bought a Cadillac Escalade.

Francois Beauchemin
A new car. It was a 2000 Toyota Celica.

Corey Perry
I bought my car when I came here. It was a Cadillac XLR.

J.S. Giguere
I bought a Jeep Grand Cherokee. That was my first car ever and my first big purchase. At the time, I didn’t have any car, so it was nice to get one.

Kent Huskins
One major purchase I made was buying a 2002 Audi A4.

Travis Moen
I just went shopping and bought a new suit. That’s about it.

Sean O’Donnell
After my first one, I was in Rochester in the minors and bought my first car. It was a Jeep Wrangler. I bought that with my signing bonus. That was a big deal, getting your own car for the first time. After I was up and down the minors for five or six years, I finally signed a three-year deal and bought myself a nice watch. It was a nice symbol as to what I had been able to accomplish and just a reminder of how tough it was it was to get there.

Joe DiPenta
I bought a new car. It was an Infinity QX4. I didn’t have a car. I wanted to buy a nice one when I signed my contract. That’s what everyone usually does.

Chris Kunitz
I paid my parents back for a car. I also ended up buying a set of Titleist golf clubs. It was something a little more expensive than I had before. It wasn’t anything too crazy. It was just something that I wanted for a long time.

Brad May
I bought a red Dodge Daytona hatchback with a white pinstripe for $3500. It was the best car on the road, a stick shift. It drove awesome. I think it was the ‘84 or the ‘85 year model.
