Montreal Canadiens: The Canadiens have actually extended forward Nick Suzuki for 8 years and $63 million, a $7.875 million wage cap hit.
Eric Engels: Suzuki stated that Canadiens approached him about a month earlier and included: “We wanted to get it done before the season started… We cut it pretty close.”

Dan Rosen: “Big contract for Nick Suzuki, an up and coming talent no doubt. This deal could wind up as a bargain for the Habs on the back half of it.”
Thomas Drance: Two ideas on the Suzuki extension.
“A) This is why you go long. Deal will be an outright take on the back-end.
B) Never waste an unsustainably fortunate season or playoff go to secure a young gamer while they believe the great times are here to remain.”
Here’s his microstat card. Solid all around, especially strong as a puck burglar. I believe producing offense from more unsafe locations will be the next location for his video game to advance. pic.twitter.com/HFYaWLghjp
