Laine, a restricted free agent, was coming off a two-year, $13.5-million bridge deal signed with the Winnipeg Jets in the fall of 2019.
The 23-year-old put up 10 goals and 21 points in his first season wearing Blue Jackets colours, that after four campaigns with the Jets.
Drafted second-overall back in 2016, Laine burst onto the scene with a 36-goal, 64-point rookie season. He followed that up with 44 goals and 70 points as a sophomore, that effort standing as his career best.
After a pair of rocky seasons in Winnipeg — in which the Finn still managed 58 goals and 113 points in 150 games — Laine was shipped to the Blue Jackets in January as part of a multi-player deal.
