Andrei Svechnikov signs 8-year contract extension


NHL exchange rumors suggested in advance this week that there has been a possibility Andrei Svechnikov could obtain an offer sheet. Well the ones rumors were positioned to rest.

The Carolina Hurricanes have agreed to terms with forward Andrei Svechnikov on an 8-year settlement, which is set to maintain the No. 2 average draft pick out from 2018 with the franchise through the 2028-29 season.

Svechnikov, 21, will get paid a mean annual price of $7.75 million per season. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound Svechnikov has been a fixture and physical presence on Carolina’s top line alongside Sebastian Aho and Teuvo Teravainen.

He turned into a restrained free agent and the team had long been in extension talks with him, though Waddell had floated the opportunity of a shorter-time period “bridge” type deal to ensure getting some thing finished if a long-time period deal couldn’t be reached.
