The Calgary Flames have actually signed star winger Jonathan Huberdeau to the wealthiest handle franchise history. The group and their brand-new star have actually consented to an eight-year, $84 million agreement extension with the franchise. Huberdeau’s agreement brings a $10.5 million typical yearly worth.

Huberdeau’s offer exceeds Sean Monahan’s seven-year, $4.625 million agreement with the Flames that was signed back in 2016. Huberdeau was obtained by the Flames in July, together with MacKenzie Weegar, Cole Schwindt and a conditional 2025 preliminary choice from the Florida Panthers in exchange for star winger Matthew Tkachuk.

“I’m thrilled to be part of the Calgary Flames organization long term,” Huberdeau stated in a group news release. “I’m excited for this new chapter and I am committed to this team. I’ll give everything I have, on and off the ice and I can’t wait to play in front of the passionate Flames fans.”

Huberdeau is coming off a season in which he signed up a career-high 115 points (30 objectives and 85 helps) with the Panthers. His 115 points were the second-most in the NHL behind only Edmonton Oilers center Connor McDavid (123) and Huberdeau led the league in helps.

In his 10 NHL seasons, Huberdeau has actually taped 613 points (198 objectives and 415 helps) while balancing almost a point-per-game. He has actually signed up a minimum of 78 points in 3 of the last 4 seasons as a member of the Panthers. Huberdeau was initially chosen by the Panthers with the No. 3 choice in the 2011 NHL Draft.

Huberdeau will likely use Calgary’s leading line together with center Elias Lindholm and fellow Tyler Toffoli with Johnny Gaudreau and Tkachuk no longer with the franchise.
