|A bit of an overpayment and I hope it bites them in the ass down the road.
The Montreal Canadiens have agreed to terms with defenceman Jeff Petry on a six-year, $33 million contract.
The average annual value of the deal is $5.5 million per year through the 2020-21 season and carries a no-trade clause.
Petry had been eligible to become an unrestricted free agent on July 1. The 27-year-old was acquired from the Edmonton Oilers at the March trade deadline and had three goals and four assists in 19 regular season games in Montreal.
He also contributed three points in 12 playoff appearances.
Petry was Edmonton's second-round pick in the 2006 Draft.
