Tanner Pearson is putting himself in line for a big payday.
Pearson's two-year, $2.8 million contract is set to expire this summer and the potential restricted free agent is sure to get a significantly more lucrative offer from the Kings as a result. After all, Pearson has set new career-highs this season with 22 goals and 40 points in 66 contests. At the age of 24 Pearson could continue to develop, so it will be interesting to see what kind of deal he gets and if he gets a long-term deal with a cap hit looks like it's balanced under the assumption of continued growth.
