Vancouver Canucks sign Filip Hronek to a massive extension

Published June 18, 2024 at 5:47 PM

The Vancouver Canucks struck gold by acquiring Filip Hronek from the Detroit Red Wings last season. He has now signed an eight-year deal to stay in Vancouver.

Filip Hronek has signed an eight-year extension with the Vancouver Canucks, worth $58 million. This constitutes an average annual value of $7.25 million.

General Manager Patrik Allvin announces that the #Canucks  have agreed to terms with defenceman Filip Hronek on an 8-year contract with a $7.25M AAV.

This is far less than the ask of Filip Hronek's camp, which was reported to be above the salary of captain Quinn Hughes, over $8 million.

#Canucks  have signed D Filip Hronek to an eight-year, $58 million extension: 8 years x $7.25 million.

Big piece of business done.


Patrik Alvin made these comments:

#Canucks  GM Allvin: «Filip has fit in seamlessly on our blueline, giving us stability and strength on the right side. His ability to skate, defend and create offence is exactly what you want from a top pairing defenceman. This season he has shown all of us his desire to compete and a willingness to be a leader on this hockey team. We look forward to seeing him continue to help elevate our group and for him to grow both on and off the ice.»

The Vancouver Canucks will now pivot towards attempting contract extensions with Elias Lindholm and Nikita Zadorov, but their biggest signing of their free agency pool is complete. While the team has limited cap space, they will attempt to maximize their roster in order to go after another playoff run next season.

Do you think Filip Hronek's $58 million extension is an overpay by the Vancouver Canucks?
