- Year One: $2.3 million
- Year Two: $3.85 million
Bob McKenzie notes that the $3.85 million in the second-year will lead to a higher qualifying offer when his contract expires.
Stepan, unlike this year, will have arbitration rights when his next contract expires.
The deal is similar to PK Subban’s contract, $2 million in year-one and $3.75 million in year two, Nazem Kadri, $3.1 million in year-one and $2.7 million in year-two, and Logan Couture, $2.75 in year-one and $3 million in year-tw.
