The yearly breakdown of Casey Cizikas' five-year, $16.75 million contract extension has been revealed.
Cizikas will earn $2 million in 2016-17, $3 million in 2017-18, and then $3.5 million, $3.75 million, and $4 million in each of the final three campaigns. All-in-all, it's a lot of money to give to a guy that averaged just 12:41 minutes per game in 2015-16. That being said, he managed to record 30 points despite that limited role and at the age of 25, it's not out of the question that he might develop a bit more. Jun 3 - 2:39 PM

You’re playing teams that are very talented, and you want to see guys play with that grit and compete hard and win those battles. That’s what he does."

The 25-year-old was forced to miss Thursday's game against Nashville because of an upper-body injury. He has seven goals and 25 points in 68 games this season. He's an effective role player, but he doesn't have much fantasy value in standard leagues.
