The Carolina Hurricanes have signed 23-year-old forward Victor Rask to a six-year, $24 million contract extension.
A second-round draft pick of the Hurricanes in 2011, Rask set career highs last season with 21 goals and 48 points.
“Victor has gotten better every season that he’s been a part of our organization,” said GM Ron Francis in a release. “He is a big part of this team’s present and future, and we are thrilled to sign him to a longer-term deal.”
The deal also inched the club over the salary floor, per General Fanager. Carolina was the only team still below it.
