Senators, star defenceman Thomas Chabot agree to eight-year, $64M contract extension

OTTAWA—The Ottawa Senators have locked up one of their young stars.

The team announced Thursday it has agreed to an eight-year, $64-million (U.S.) contract extension with defenceman Thomas Chabot.

The 22-year-old has 23 goals and 80 points in 134 career NHL games.

Selected 18th overall in the 2015 NHL draft, Chabot had 14 goals and 55 points in his first full NHL season in 2018-19.

The signing is a statement for a franchise that saw its three best players — Erik Karlsson, Mark Stone and Matt Duchene — traded away in the last 12 months.

Chabot, who has one year left on his entry-level deal, will earn $7 million in both 2020-21 and 2021-22, $4 million in 2022-23, $8 million in 2023-24, $10 million in 2024-25, 2025-26 and 2026-27, and $8 million in 2027-28.
