The Tampa Bay Lightning have signed Tyler Johnson to a seven-year, $35 million contract extension.
Johnson was a restricted free agent and had filed for arbitration. This contract offers him a pay bump from his completed three-year, $10 million deal, but his new $5 million annual cap hit will be a steal, bust, or anything in between. That's because Johnson has had a career of extremes thus far. He had a 50-point rookie season to place third in Calder Trophy voting and followed that up with a 72-point sophomore campaign. However, he struggled in 2015-16 14 goals and 38 points in 69 games and while he bounced back last season with 44 points in 66 contests, it was still considerably shy of his peak. If he can stay healthy and bounce back to his 2014-15 levels then this contract will look great for Tampa Bay, but of course that's far from certain and the Lightning are consequently taking a significant risk given the length of this deal.
