Pierre LeBrun: The New York Rangers have signed defenseman Adam Fox to a seven-year contract extension with a $9.5 million wage cap hit.
Colin Stephenson: Fox on the dedication to him after the seven-year extension.
“After I was coming in right here I used to be simply hoping to make the staff and be a Ranger. And now, to have a corporation that believes in me this a lot and is placing lots of religion in me, it’s an enormous honor for me.”
Colin Stephenson: Fox: “… Possibly there is a bit more expectation when you could have a brand new contract, or the Norris Trophy. However there’s an excellent group of fellows that I do know help me, and I don’t try to put an excessive amount of stress on myself, I simply try to do what I do on the ice and play hockey.”
Darren Dreger: “Largest D contract in historical past for participant leaving Entry Degree.”
Mike Harrington: “Seven years and $9.5 AAV for Adam Fox as per @PierreVLeBrun. The Norris Trophy winner bought P-A-I-D. Needed to get a minimum of what Seth Jones did, proper? The #Blackhawks actually hosed the protection market by overpaying for a man who wasn’t worthy of it.”
Puck Pedia: Comparables to Fox’s new deal.
Zach Werenski: $9.58 million x 6 years (5 UFA years purchased)
Seth Jones: $9.5 million x 8 (8 UFA)
Charlie McAvoy: $9.5 million x 8 (6 UFA)
Darnell Nurse: $9.25 million x 8 (8 UFA)
Cale Makar: $9 million x 6 (1 UFA)
Miro Heiskanen: $8.45 million x 8 (4 UFA)
Puck Pedia: “With the identical Cap Hit as Werenski/Jones/McAvoy, Fox’s deal is definitely valued greater on account of much less UFA years Regardless of $500K extra cap hit than Makar, Makar’s deal is valued greater on account of just one UFA yr vs 4 for Fox”
