Year-by-year breakdown of Carey Price’s contract

Kyle Bukauskas takes a look at the Montreal Canadiens signing Carey Price to a blockbuster deal and what that means for the team going forward.

The Montreal Canadiens signed Carey Price to an eight-year, $84-million contract extension a week ago, making him the richest goaltender in NHL history. With that came plenty of speculation about the details of his contract.

Sources have provided Sportsnet with a breakdown of the deal, which features an average annual value of $10.5 million. It’s worth noting there is never a season where Price makes more than $2 million in base salary.

Here’s a year-by-year look at the contract.
