The anticipated long-term extension for defenseman Marcus Pettersson is now official.

[hide] Per the Penguins, the team has agreed to terms with Pettersson on a 5 year, $20,125,875 extension.

The deal will begin for the 2020-21 season and run through the 2024-25 season carrying an AAV of $4,025,175.

After signing a 1 year deal in September, the two sides had the frame work pretty much in place to do a long-term contract in the 4-6 year range after January 1, 2020.

Pettersson’s cap hit just north of $4 million falls right in place where expectations have been for the past few months. [/hide]
