Stars sign Jamie Benn to eight-year extension

Winger Jamie Benn has signed an eight-year, $76 million extension with the Dallas Stars.

What It Means:

Benn will be on the cusp of his 36th birthday when this contract runs out after the 2024-2025 season, as the 27-year-old (happy birthday, Jamie!) still has another season left on his five-year, $26.25 million contract. The numbers on this new deal are eye-opening, but Benn has proven to be worth it and the Stars should still have enough financial flexibility to maintain a core group that can contend for the Cup.

Benn, 26, was a monster this season. He netted a career-high 41 goals and dished out 48 assists, giving him a career-best 89 points. He posted a 53.1 Corsi For Percentage, although his -1.1 Relative Corsi For Percentage at Even Strength was a career-low.
