Edmonton Oilers Get Hometown Discount on Connor McDavid $100 Million Extension

By Anthony Blake

It may seem ridiculous to call a $100 million contract a discount in any sense of the word, but when the talent being secured for the next eight seasons is Connor McDavid, the Edmonton Oilers got a steal.

The #Oilers have signed Connor McDavid to an eight-year contract extension.

The 20-year-old phenom who carried the Oilers to the postseason for the first time in a decade will be an unprecedented value at an average of just $12.5 million annually.

McDavid led the NHL in scoring last season with 100 points and cleaned up on awards night as a result.

He’s just entering the prime of his career, meaning this contract will prove to be a heist for the Oilers by the time it’s nearing its conclusion.
