The Dallas Stars have re-signed Center Tyler Seguin. He has signed an eight-year extension.
His new deal will be worth $78.8 million per season. He’ll have an average salary of $9.85 million per season.
“I’m thrilled to have this signed going into the season,” said Seguin. “Dallas has become home to me and I love this organization. In my time over the last five years with Tom Gaglardi and Jim Nill, it is clear how bad they want to win and have a model franchise. To be a part of that leadership group for the next nine seasons is an honor, and I can’t wait to get this season started with my teammates.”
Seguin had 40 goals in 82 games last season. He also had 38 assists for 78 points.
The 40 goals are the most he ever had in a season. He previously had 37 goals as a career-high during the 2013-14 and 2014-15 seasons.
In 590 career NHL games, he has 229 goals. He also has 276 assists.
The 26-year-old was acquired by the Stars in a trade with the Boston Bruins on July 4th, 2013. The Bruins traded Seguin, Rich Peverley, and Ryan Button.
The Stars sent Loui Eriksson, Reilly Smith, Matt Fraser and Joe Morrow to Boston.
“Tyler is a world-class player and has become a leader for this franchise,” said Stars general manager Jim Nill. “We’re ecstatic that he has dedicated himself to the city of Dallas and the Stars organization for the next nine years. In his time here, he has not only become an elite player, but he has done tremendous work in the community. Being able to get this done before the season starts shows how committed he is to this group, and how important winning is to him.”
