Sharks sign Evander Kane to massive seven-year deal

The San Jose Sharks have signed winger Evander Kane to a seven-year extension worth $49 million.

What It Means:

Kane will make $7 million a year under the deal, which includes a very limited no-trade clause. If the team wants to deal the 26-year-old they'll only have three teams to choose from. The no-trade goes throughout the contract, so this is a high-risk, high-reward move. The team will hope that Kane hits his stride in his prime, after performing well since landing in San Jose at the trade deadline.

Across his time with the Sharks and Buffalo Sabres, Kane produced 29 goals, 25 assists and 54 points with 307 shots in 1,527 minutes.
