Roman Josi, Captain of the Nashville Predators, has signed for 8 more seasons with the team. Josi’s new contract doesn’t kick in until next season but the 29-year-old defenseman will be set up nicely form here.
Josi is making $4 million in the final year of his contract but will get bumped up to $11.75 million in Total Salary next year. Here is a breakdown via CapFriendly of Josi’s contract.
Josi has played in 11 games this season with 13 points (5G 8A) already. He’s averaging 24:32 on the ice per game. This is a good move for Nashville to keep their captain around and avoid the drama of a resigning when his contract is up.
