The day after being acquired in a trade for Alex Galchenyuk, Max Domi has signed a two-year contract with the Montreal Canadiens.
The deal carries an average annual value of $3.15 million. For context, Galchenyuk is set to make $4.9 million per year for the next two seasons on the contract extension he signed in July of 2017 that takes him through his remaining RFA years.
Drafted 12th overall in 2013, Domi was signed to his entry-level contract three weeks later. With two more seasons spent playing in the CHL extending the life of that first NHL contract to five years, he was set to become a restricted free agent this summer. He will still be a restricticted free agent once this new deal reaches its end.
Domi has posted 36 goals and 99 assists in three NHL seasons. He missed 23 games with a broken hand in the middle of 2016-17, but played a full campaign in each of his other two years.
