The contract is basically a max ELC. It comes with a $925,000 cap hit with $2.85 million in potential bonuses. If Lafreniere hits all his bonuses (he won’t), the contract would be a $3.775 million cap hit. Lafreniere will wear #13 with the Rangers.
Signing Lafreniere to his ELC was a foregone conclusion this offseason. It was a matter of when. He will be in the opening night lineup.
