Flyers Sign Shea Weber To Offer Sheet
The Philadelphia Flyers have signed star defenseman Shea Weber to an offer sheet, the team confirmed early Thursday.
The deal is for 14 years and is worth about $110 million, a source confirmed to ESPN.com. Weber, 26, will receive $56 million in the first four years of the deal, a source told ESPN The Magazine NHL Insider Craig Custance.
In the first four years of the contract — when he’ll earn $14 million per year — $13 million per year is designated as a signing bonus, with an additional $1 million in salary, the source told Custance.
A restricted free agent, Weber has spent his entire career with the Nashville Predators who have seven days to match Philadelphia’s offer, which was first reported by TSN of Canada.
If the Predators decide not to match the offer, they would receive four future first-round draft picks from the Flyers, according to TSN.
