Tampa Bay Lightning

NHL CapHit: $3,500,000 Puckpedia Profile

The Lightning have signed Andrei Vasilevskiy to an eight-year contract extension worth $76.0 million ($9.5M AAV).

Vasilevskiy had an excellent 2019 regular season, leading the NHL in wins (39), fourth in shutouts (6), sixth in SV% (.925) and ninth in GAA (2.40). Despite having a forgettable postseason, Vasilevskiy earned a much-deserved raise, becoming the third highest-paid netminder in the NHL. He should absolutely be one of the first goalies drafted this fall (if not the first).
