Jonathan Huberdeau signs extension with Panthers

Forward gets six-year contract worth $5.9 million per season @NHLdotcom

Jonathan Huberdeau on Wednesday signed a six-year contract extension with the Florida Panthers worth $35.4 million, an average annual value of $5.9 million.

The 23-year-old forward will play this season on the final year of a two-year contract. His new contract runs through the 2022-23 season.

"Jonathan is a highly talented and dynamic player who is another important piece of our team's young core," Panthers president of hockey operations Dale Tallon said. "In each of his last two seasons he has posted over 50 points and has developed into a key component of our team's offense."

Huberdeau had NHL career highs of 20 goals and 39 assists (59 points) in 76 games last season, his fourth with the Panthers.

The No. 3 pick in the 2011 NHL Draft has 58 goals and 114 assists (172 points) in 272 NHL games, and won the Calder Trophy as NHL rookie of the year after the 2012-13 season.

Huberdeau is the fourth Panthers player to sign a long-term contract extension this offseason, joining defenseman Aaron Ekblad (eight years) and forwards Vincent Trocheck (six years) and Reilly Smith (five years).
