The Chicago Blackhawks extended Dominik Kubalik to a very good contract.
The Chicago Blackhawks saw Dominik Kubalik come in and have a fantastic rookie season. It was so good that he came in third place for the NHL’s Calder Trophy as the league’s top rookie. He became only the fifth player in the history of the Chicago Blackhawks to have 30 goals as a rookie. As a result, they gave him a two-year contract extension with an average annual value of 3.7 million dollars per year.
This is the type of deal that you would consider good for both parties involved. It is good for Kubalik because he now has 7.4 million dollars coming his way over two years with a chance to prove he is worth even more. If he continues to score upwards of 30 goals, he will get a significant raise two years from now.
