Ottawa Senators and center Josh Norris have agreed on an eight-year, $ 63.6 million contract, the team announced Thursday. He was a limited free agent.
Norris comes after a breakout season with career highs in goals (35) and assists (20) in 60 games. His season was disrupted by a shoulder injury that put him on the sidelines for 15 games in early 2022.
The 23-year-old Norris has spent three seasons with the Senators after the San Jose Sharks drafted him in 2017. A year later, he was traded to the Senators in a deal that sent Erik Karlsson to San Jose.
Norris made his NHL debut in the 2019-20 season after signing a three-year entry-level contract with Ottawa.
