Jeff Petry signed a four-year, $ 25 million contract extension with the Montreal Canadiens on Friday, beginning with the 2021-22 season. It has an average annual value of . 25 million. The 32-year-old defenseman could have become an unrestricted free agent after next season. He agreed to terms on

MONTREAL - Montreal Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin announced today that the team has agreed to terms on a four-year contract extension with defenseman Jeff Petry (until the end of the 2024- 25 season). The deal has an average annual value of . 25 million. Petry , 32, registered 40

The Montreal Canadiens have made a huge move just a few weeks before free agency opens, extending Jeff Petry for another four years. Petry was still under contract for the 2020-21 season but will now be locked up through 2024-25. The new deal is worth a total of $25M, giving him a $6.25M cap hit starting in 2021-22. It also includes a 15-team no-trade clause and a no-movement clause, meaning he will require automatic protection in the upcoming expansion draft.

  Tarik Cohen, Bears agree to three-year, $17.25M extension The 2017 fourth-round selection was in the final year of his rookie contract, so his new deal will keep him tethered to the club through the 2023 season. And while Cohen does get a nice influx of cash, the contract looks pretty reasonable for a player of his capabilities. He has never topped 100 carries in a season, but he does boast a solid 4.2 yards-per-carry average in his career, and he has averaged nearly 70 receptions per season over his first three professional campaigns.Cohen has also served as Chicago’s primary punt returner during that time, and he earned a 2018 Pro Bowl nod for his special teams acumen.

The Montreal Canadiens have signed defenseman Jeff Petry to a six-year deal , worth a reported million.

Though he still doesn’t get quite the recognition of one, Petry has developed into one of the best two-way defensemen in the league over the last few years. In fact, his 128 points over the last three seasons put him 17th among all NHL defenders, while his 36 goals sit 11th over the same time period. Though he’ll never get the same type of press that teammate Shea Weber receives, Petry is almost equally important to the Canadiens and showed it this postseason.

The 32-year-old defenseman averaged more than 25 minutes a night as Montreal shocked the hockey world by defeating the Pittsburgh Penguins in the qualification round and took the Philadelphia Flyers to six games. For a team that wasn’t even expecting to be included in the playoffs, their performance was admirable and as Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic tweets, could have had a real impact on the uber-competitive Petry’s decision to remain.

Condensed season puts more pressure on goaltending

  Condensed season puts more pressure on goaltending Even those teams with outstanding starters will be looking for legitimate backup options as we head towards the condensed 2020-21 season. It may not even end up needing the “2020” part, given the regular season is now not expected to start until January.If that’s the case and the league continues to remain steadfast on playing the full 82-game schedule, next season will be extremely difficult on starting goaltenders. Back-to-back situations will come up much more frequently, with three-in-four-nights often also becoming the norm.

There’s no doubt that Petry earned an extension with his play, but it’s not like this deal comes without a fair bit of risk for the team. Petry will turn 33 in December (likely before the 2020-21 campaign even begins), meaning this deal takes him deep into his thirties at an expensive cap hit. While his current play is deserving of a raise on the $5.5M cap hit he currently carries, it’s hard to expect him to continue at that level for the duration of his new contract.

Combine that with the fact that Weber still has six years left on his current contract, which keeps him at a $7.86M cap hit through 2025-26 and the Canadiens will have quite a bit of space eaten up by two aging defensemen. Of course, there are ways around that, including a revamped cap recapture system should Weber decide to retire before his contract expires. But with a Montreal team that is still looking for an identity upfront, committing so much money to aging defensemen could end up backfiring.

  Red Wings won't re-sign Jonathan Ericsson, Trevor Daley Red Wings general manager Steve Yzerman stated that veteran defensemen Jonathan Ericsson and Trevor Daley will not return to the team next season. The pair are both unrestricted free agents and will have to test the market if they hope to extend their careers. © Rick Osentoski-USA TODAY Sports Jonathan Ericsson will be looking for a new team. Detroit’s decision to cut ties with Ericsson and Daley should not come as a shock; both blue liners saw their roles greatly reduced this season. Ericsson, a career Red Wing, was buried in the AHL for much of the year, skating in just 18 games with Detroit.
