Brady Tkachuk finally inked a 7 year $57.5m contract. After a long drawn-out “family” contract talk, Tkachuk finally inks his extension and returns to Ottawa to begin the ’21-’22 season. The contract carries a NMC is years 5-7 and will carry him to free agency at the age of 29. An interesting part of this contract is $0 in signing bonuses throughout the entire contract, which seems to follow suit with the other Senators core players.

Tkachuk was the most important piece of business for Ottawa GM Pierre Dorion to complete this offseason, although it is not the full 8-year term, this contract avoided another messy bridge deal. BT #7 will return to his role as the top C in Ottawa and assumedly return to playing with Stutzle and Batherson at the wings.
