Nick Suzuki signs contract extension with Canadians

Nick Suzuki signs contract extension with Canadians

Following the incident training camp, the Montreal Canadians decided to start the regular season with good news, extending an eight-year contract and announcing a $ 63 million, deal with Nick Suzuki on Tuesday.

The new deal will run from the 2022-2023 to 2029-2030 seasons and will bring the 22-year-old center an average of $ 7.875 million. Suzuki will become CH’s best-paying striker ahead of Brendan Gallagher ($ 6.5 million) in the next campaign.

“We are very pleased to be receiving Nick’s services for the next eight seasons,” General Manager Mark Bergewin said in a brief statement.

Ontario has 82 points from 127 career National Hockey League games. In 2020-2021, he showed a crop of 41 points in 56 games, the second-best total among the Blue-Blank-Roose forwards.

He is expected to occupy a prominent position at the top of the squad this season.

In September 2018, Suzuki was acquired along with Thomas Tatar in a deal that sent former CH captain Max Pacioretti to Vegas Golden Knights. He was the first round pick of the Nevada team in 2017 (13th overall).
