Stamkos' deal was good for eight years, $68 million, while Hedman received an eight-year, $63 million contract, both signed earlier this month.
Keeping those key players along for the ride made the decision to stay with Tampa Bay that much easier for Killorn. The forward stated "playing on a team that has a chance to compete for the Stanley Cup every year is important."
The 26-year-old has 53 goals and 85 assists in 272 regular-season NHL games in his career. He also has 15 goals and 18 assists in 47 Stanley Cup Playoff games. The native of Nova Scotia will count $4.45 million against the salary cap through the 2022-23 season.
The deal seems to be well-deserved, as Killorn has been one of many key pieces keeping the Lightning atop the Eastern Conference year after year. His 33 playoff points are good for fourth among Canadian-born players over the last three seasons.
Tampa Bay has had a very successful off-season without any major new additions. After multiple playoff appearances and a conference title as of late, they can make the argument: why change something that just works so well?
