After much negotiation, the Pittsburgh Penguins have agreed to terms with defenseman Kris Letang on an eight-year, $58 million contract extension.

The deal begins with the 2014-15 season and runs through the 2021-22 campaign, and has an average annual value of $7.25 million.

Letang, 26, finished third in balloting for the Norris Trophy as the best defenseman in the NHL.

He led all NHL defensemen in both points (t-38) and assists (33) while posting a plus-16 rating and in 35 regular-season games.

Originally drafted by the Penguins in the third round (62nd overall) of the 2005 NHL Draft, Letang has tallied 44 goals and 165 assists for 209 points and a plus-42 rating in 385 career regular-season games.
