Tampa Bay has finally locked up 23-year-old Brayden Point for 3 more seasons. Point has an AAV of $6.75 million with a few signing bonuses sprinkled in there.
Point has been explosive for Tampa. Last season, the kid played in 79 games with 92 points (41 G 51 A). He maintained a 51.9% Corsi For last season. In Tampa’s brief playoff run, Point had 1 goal in 4 games while averaging 19:16 on the ice.
This leaves just 6 RFAs.
This is big if Tampa wants to go one another run for the Cup. Hopefully this time they can pick up at least 1 playoff win. But only time will tell.
