The Winnipeg Jets extended the contract of Zach Bogosian yesterday for another 7 seasons. Bogosian was a restricted free agent this season. The Jets came to terms with him yesterday for a seven year extension worth $36 million.
Bogosian is a 23 years old defenseman and was the third overall pick in 2008, and has spent 5 seasons in the NHL, his first three with Atlanta, and the last two in Winnipeg after the Thrashers made their move to Winnipeg. Bogosian has totaled 34 goals, 69 assists, and 103 points in 297 games in his career.
The contract will pay Bogosian $4 million for the first two seasons, $5.25 million the third and fourth seasons, $5.5 million for the fifth year, and $6 million for the final two years of his contract. He will carry a cap hit worth $5.14+ a season.
The Jets have stayed busy resigning players in their organization already, tying up Blake Wheeler last week, and Bryan Little shortly before that. The Jets look reloaded and ready for the start of next season. May the count down begin.
