Terrific news: Thomas Plekanec has signed a new two-year, 12 million dollar extension running through the 2017-18 season, thereby ending rumours that the shifty and truly smart forward might be moving on after this campaign. After he hoists the Cup.
Plekanec will be almost 35 when this extension runs its course, and if he wants to retire, he probably has a few bucks banked away after earning 40 million or so Habs dollars.
If he doesn’t, he should be ashamed of himself.
It goes without saying that Pleks has been an important, ultra-talented Montreal Canadien over the years, with a great career that began in 2005-06, and now as he chips away at 800 games wearing the CH, we know we have him, after this season, for at least two more after that.
Below, Prust, yours truly, and Plekanec.
