Stanley Cup champions are back in business after another busy year.
The Pittsburgh Penguins announced Wednesday that they have agreed to a four-year, $21.75 million extension with goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury.
That’s a total of $10.5 million over the contract’s five-year term, according to Sportsnet.
The extension also brings the Penguins’ payroll to $70.3 million.
The deal was first reported by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
The Penguins have a new general manager in Marc Bergevin and head coach Dan Bylsma.
The team has been linked to goaltenders Cam Ward and Ilya Bryzgalov.
Fleury was an unrestricted free agent after this season, and the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reported that he is looking for a new contract.
