The Montreal Canadiens have signed defenceman Jeff Petry on a six-year, $33 million contract.
The average annual value of the deal is $5.5 million per season.
“To re-sign (Petry) to a new contract was one of our main off-season priorities. Jeff showed a tremendous will to commit to the Canadiens and stay in Montreal,” said Canadiens general manager Marc Bergevin in a statement. “He is a solid defenseman with speed and size who acquired valuable playoff experience this year. Jeff is a very good fit within our group of defensemen and his presence gives us a lot of depth at this position.”
