The 25-year-old will earn $600,000 in 2013-14 and 2014-15, and $800,000 in 2015-16.

The Maple Ridge, British Columbia, native started the 2012-13 season with Milwaukee; he led Admirals defensemen and was ranked among the AHL’s top 20 in points with 26 (seven goals) in 54 games at the time of his last AHL regular-season game, and represented the team at the 2013 AHL All-Star Classic.

Quote of the Day

I don't think it's really truly going to sink in until we drop the puck, to be honest. I know there's going to be a lot of smoke and mirrors with the media attention and all that. We came [Monday] and it was sort of a light day to get things organized. We just want to focus in on the business aspect, the game itself. That's what we're preparing to do. Get these next couple of days out of the way and it's game on.
