Reports from the Calgary Sun previously indicated that Gaudreau's camp was looking for closer to $8 million annually, while the Flames were reluctant to go over $7 million per year. He won't be making more than Mark Giordano, either, which also seemed like a sticking point for the Flames.

The Flames announced on Monday that the club and Gaudreau have agreed to a six-year contract extension.

Obviously Gaudreau didn't sign for pennies but ultimately the Flames got exactly what they wanted here.

Calgary assigned forwards Linden Vey, Brandon Bollig and Daniel Pribyl to their American Hockey League affiliate in Stockton, Calif. Defenceman Ladislav Smid (neck) is on injured reserve to start the season.

"Obviously the team believed in me and believes in me for the next six years and I'm going to have to perform the way I always have", he said. He led the 2014-15 team in playoff points, recording 9 points in 11 games.

The AAV comes in just $400,000 higher than teammate Sean Monahan signed for earlier this off-season, though Monahan signed for seven years. Don't worry about the burdens that come with it. "To whom much is given, much is expected". He was one of the team's most effective players, notching four points in three games. Those in-tight plays and his ability to retrieve that puck.
