We are now one week into National Hockey League free agency. Here are the six richest contracts so far.
5) T.J. Brodie–Toronto Maple Leafs–The native of Chatham, Ontario signed a four year deal worth $20 million from the Calgary Flames on October 9. Brodie, a defenseman, has spent the last decade with the Flames and has 48 goals and 218 assists for 266 points in 635 games.
5) Evgeny Dadonov–Ottawa Senators–The Russian right winger signed a three year deal worth $15 million from the Florida Panthers. Last season he had 25 goals and 22 assists for 47 points. Dadonov played three seasons with the Panthers from 2009 to 2012, before moving back to the Kontinental Hockey League in Russia for five seasons. He then rejoined the Panthers again for the 2017-18 season.
4) Jacob Markstrom–Calgary Flames–With Jacob Markstrom being an unrestricted free agent and Thatcher Demko having a strong stretch of postseason play for the Vancouver Canucks, it is no surprise that Markstrom left the Canadian west coast.
