Canadiens' Carey Price Now NHL's Highest Paid Goalie With Contract Extension

Canadiens' Carey Price Now NHL's Highest Paid Goalie With Contract Extension

His overall production may have dipped last season, with 17 goals and 44 points - remember, he also missed 21 games, too - but Galchenyuk is also a 30-goal scorer from 2015-16 and eligible for arbitration this summer, which could be an option, according to his agent Pat Brisson.

Price isn't going anywhere, keeping intact the Canadiens' most important building block toward the franchise's 25th Stanley Cup and first since 1993.

A new deal for Price was nearly a certainty for the Canadiens, who have continued to retool their team for a run at a Stanley Cup.

The Montreal Canadiens and Carey Price have come to an agreement on an eight-year, $84 million contract today.

Along with his impressive resume in Montreal, Price led Canada to gold medals at the 2014 Winter Olympics and 2007 World Junior Championships, as well as the 2016 World Cup of Hockey title. This past spring he fashioned a 1.86 GAA, but his Canadiens were not good enough to get out of the first round, ousted in six games by the Rangers. He's now the Caps' second highest-paid player behind only Alex Ovechkin.

Djokovic thrash Medvedev to reach Eastbourne final
The three-time Wimbledon victor opens his account this as the second seed, against Martin Klizan of Slovakia. Hard to believe, but for Djokovic, the title in Eastbourne was the first on grass ATP tournaments.

Price won the Vezina trophy victor as the league's top goaltender in the 2014-15 season and has the highest save percentage (.923) since the start of the 2011-12 season.

On Saturday, the Stars signed unrestricted free agent forward Martin Hanzal and are hoping to add one more forward.

"There's no doubt we want to bring Radulov back to Montreal, but not on his terms", Bergevin said. The 38-year-old Thornton said he heard from more than half the league before taking San Jose's one-year, $8 million pact. He finished third in the Vezina Trophy voting, behind Sergei Bobrovsky and Braden Holtby.

"Giving one player a big amount makes things a little more hard", Bergevin admitted Sunday after announcing the deal.

Damned if you. Damned if you don't.
