The total value of McDavid's $100 million Authentic Cody Wichmann Youth Jersey deal falls short of Alex Ovechkin's $124 million, Shea Weber's $110 million and Sidney Crosby's $104.4 million. McDavid is going into the final season of his rookie contract. It has a base salary of $925,000 with performance bonuses of $2.85 million. His new deal starts in 2018-19. In just his second season, the 20-year-old McDavid won the Art Ross Trophy with 100 points (30 goals, league-leading 70 assists), the third-youngest player to do so behind Crosby and Wayne Gretzky. "I want to win here," McDavid said. "This is a city that has such a rich history. It's important we bring that back. We got a taste of that last season. ... Honestly, it's such an honor to be here and to wear that Oilers jersey for the next nine years of my life." He also led the Oilers to the playoffs for the first time since 2006. Edmonton lost in the second round in seven games to Anaheim. "We've built a good team here," McDavid Authentic Cairo Santos Womens Jersey said. "Sure, it was just one year, but we're on the right track." McDavid was the first overall pick of the 2015 draft and had 48 points in 45 games in 2015-16. His season was abbreviated by a broken collarbone. The Oilers are also trying to sign McDavid's teammate, Leon Draisaitl, to a long-term deal. Edmonton cleared cap space earlier in the offseason by trading Jordan Eberle to the New York Islanders. Draisaitl, who is a restricted free agent, was second on the team with 77 points last season. Shero said in a conference call this weekend that he didn't "want to be an impediment for [Kovalchuk] getting back in the league" but also said he had no plans to trade him for "pennies on the dollar." He will be an unrestricted free agent next season, however, and would be free to sign with any NHL team if he decided to return to North America to play. It is not the first time that speculation has been raised about Kovalchuk's possible return to the NHL. In 2016, NHL deputy commissioner Bill Daly admitted there were "a lot of different rules that apply to his situation" and wouldn't give a direct answer when asked if Kovalchuk would have to sit out a year prior to returning. Kovalchuk scored 417 goals and registered 816 points in 816 career games with the Devils and Atlanta Thrashers. He was the first Russian player selected with the No. 1 overall pick when he was taken by Atlanta in 2001. He was acquired by the Devils in February 2010, then signed his revised massive contract seven months later. In 245 career KHL games, Kovalchuk has 107 goals -- including 32 for SKA St. Petersburg last season -- and 157 assists. Kovalchuk has represented Russia at four Winter Olympic Games, nine world championships, one world junior championship and the 2004 World Cup. RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired Marcus Kruger from the Vegas Golden Knights, the forward's second trade in three days. In the deal announced Tuesday, the Golden Knights picked up Carolina's fifth-round pick in the 2018 draft. Chicago traded Kruger to Vegas on Sunday for undisclosed future considerations. "Especially Authentic Edinson Volquez Womens Jersey with the expansion draft, you just had to expect the unexpected, in some regard," Kruger told, when asked about being traded twice in a span of three days. "I was ready for most of it, but you never know what to expect. ... I'm excited for the upcoming season here. I've got a good feeling about it." Used primarily as a checking-line forward, Kruger had five goals and 12 assists for 17 points in 70 games last season. Overall, he has 33 goals and 72 assists for 105 points in 398 games over seven seasons and helped the Blackhawks win the Stanley Cup twice, in 2013 and 2015. Carolina general manager Ron Francis said the Hurricanes are "determined to bring in experienced players with winning pedigrees" and that Kruger "fits that mold." The Dallas Stars signed former Montreal Canadiens forward Alexander Radulov to a five-year, $31.25 million contract on Monday. It's the biggest contract given to an unrestricted free agent this offseason. Radulov, 30, said during a conference call that the Canadiens matched the Stars' offer, but only after he had accepted the Dallas deal, and he would not go back on his word. "I said I already agreed with Dallas," Radulov said. "I said it wouldn't be fair, it wouldn't be right. If you take it you take it, there's no way back, right?" His deal is worth almost $5 million more than Kevin Shattenkirk's with the New York Rangers and ties Karl Alzner's with Montreal for the longest signed by an unrestricted free agent this offseason.
