Jonathan Huberdeau Agrees to $84 Million Extension with Calgary Flames

Jonathan Huberdeau joined the Calgary Flames earlier this summer, and he’s making a long-term commitment to the team. The 29-year-old ice hockey winger signed an $84 million extension with the team, that will keep him in Calgary for the next eight years. Huberdeau was traded to the Flames from Florida Panthers back in June, along with MacKenzie Weegar, Cole Schwindt, and a 2025 conditional first-round draft pick, in exchange for Matthew Tkachuk and a conditional fourth-round draft pick Huberdeau’s new deal won’t be active until the 2023-24 season, and it will earn him approximately $10.5 million per season. He’s entering the final year of his existing contract this season, netting $5.9 million for the upcoming campaign. Huberdeau made his NFL debut with the Panthers back in 2013, but he’s ready for new endeavors in Calgary after signing his blockbuster contract. "I'm thrilled to be part of the Calgary Flames organization long term. I'm excited for this new chapter, and I am committed to this team. I'll give everything I have, on and off the ice, and I can't wait to play in front of the passionate Flames fans," said Huberdeau in a statement. Huberdeau’s new deal makes him the second-highest paid left-winger, behind Artemi Panarin of the New York Rangers, with $11.642 million per year.
