Brayden Point has signed an 8-year contract extension with the Tampa Bay Lightning

Brayden Point has signed an 8-year, $76M contract extension with the Tampa Bay Lightning for a $9.5M AAV.

Over his five-year NHL career, Point has played only for the Lightning so far. The club originally drafted him in the third round, 79th overall of the 2014 NHL draft. Now, the 25-year-old will be staying put for the foreseeable future.

Across his career Point has scored 139 goals and 171 assists for 310 total points in 351 games. Last year, he scored 23 goals and 25 assists for 48 points in 56 contests. His career-high came back in 2018-19, the league’s most recent full campaign prior to COVID-19. Point posted 41 goals and 92 points in 79 games. He’s broken the 30-goal plateau in one other instance, and in both COVID-shortened seasons still managed to break the 20-goal plateau. He has been a key piece to why the Lightning have won back-to-back Stanley Cup Championships.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: iburdetskiy@hookedonhockey.com and let's talk some hockey!
