Ryan Johansen just hit the lotto.
Friday, the 24-year-old first-line center signed an eight-year, $64 million contract with the Nashville Predators that will keep the Canadian in Music City through the 2024-25 season. The Predators are coming off their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Final in franchise history.
“I really feel in these next eight years, we’re going to do really well,” Predators general manager David Poile said. “And when we do really well, Ryan Johansen is going to be a big, big factor in all of our winning.”
