NHL: Penguins and Kris Letang Agree on 8-Year Extension

Jul 2 2013, 10:43pm CDT | by

The Pittsburgh Penguins reached an agreement with defenseman Kris Letang for an eight-year contract extension.

The Pittsburgh Penguins reached an agreement with defenseman Kris Letang for an eight-year contract extension. 

According tot he Pittsburgh Penguins official website, the deal is said to be valued at $58 million during that span, with the average annual value at around $7.25 million. It was announced on Tuesday by Penguins general manager Ray Shero

Mike Brehm of USA Today Sports writes the new deal will rank Letang third among NHL defensemen behind the Nashville Predators' Shea Weber ($7.85 million) and the Minnesota Wild's Ryan Suter ($7.53 million).

He will also be third among players on the Penguins roster behind Evgeni Malkin ($9.5 million beginning in 2013-14) and Sidney Crosby ($8.7 million). 

The 26-year-old native of Montreal cannot sign until Friday under terms indicated in the NHL's collective bargaining agreement. 

Letang, a member of the 2009 Stanley Cup champions and a two-time NHL All-Star, is coming off his best NHL season. He wound up third in balloting for the Norris Trophy after emerging as the leader among NHL defensemen in assists with 33. After finishing with 38 points, he finished in a tie with fellow defensemen P.K. Subban of the Montreal Canadiens and Erik Karlsson of the Ottawa Senators. 

Before he donned a Pittsburgh Penguins jersey, Letang played three seasons with Val d'Or of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League from 2004-07. In his final year with the team, he won the Emile "Butch" Bouchard Trophy and the Kevin Lowe Trophy.

Oct 11 2014 11:55pm CDT | Source: Sportsnet.ca

TORONTO — Sidney Crosby does not just kill a conversation. He interrupts things mid-sentence, flips over the table, cuts all power to the room and leaves you as confused as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs attempting a breakout. It is just two games into the Pittsburgh Penguins season and there is already no oxygen — no life — left in the hottest of hot takes from last spring. Indeed, that tortured discussion about who had displaced Crosby as the ...
