Winnipeg Jets general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff deserves a pat on the back after locking up franchise goalie Connor Hellebuyck for the next six seasons.

Hellebuyck’s new deal carries with it a team-friendly annual salary cap hit of $6.167 million—a bargain considering the season the 25-year-old just had.

The Commerce, Mich., native made a career-high 67 appearances in 2017-18 and led the league with 44 wins, setting a single-season franchise record along the way. His six shutouts and .924 save percentage were also franchise records.

Hellebuyck finished second in Vezina Trophy voting as the NHL’s top goaltender and 13th in Hart Trophy voting, illustrating just how valuable he was to a Jets team that finished with the second-best record in the league and advanced to the Western Conference Final.

Cap Comparables: Kucherov cashes in, but doesn’t break the bank

  Cap Comparables: Kucherov cashes in, but doesn’t break the bank Nikita Kucherov’s eight-year extension with the Lightning is a big one, but still allows GM Steve Yzerman some flexibility.The deal, which locks up the would-be 2019 RFA through the 2026-27 season, is not at all surprising. Sure, $9.5 million is a big price tag — $1 million more per year than captain Steven Stamkos’ $8.5-million average annual value — but Kucherov is worth every penny and likely could have gotten even more.

Laine’s cap hit could very well reach the teens in millions, while Connor might not be easy to retain after coming off of a 30-goal rookie season. [Golden Knights’ incredible run continues to Stanley Cup Final]. 3rd Star: Connor Hellebuyck , Winnipeg Jets .

It wasn’t too long ago that Cheveldayoff inked Mark Scheifele to a long-deal that pays him an average of $6.125 million per year. Having those two stars under control through the 2023-24 season at a combined $12.892 million is a triumph in cap management.

Cheveldayoff isn’t done handing out new deals, either.

Patrik Laine and Kyle Connor are eligible to sign long-term extensions—both are entering the final year of their entry-level deals—while Blake Wheeler and Tyler Myers are set to become unrestricted free agents following the 2018-19 campaign. Current RFAs Jacob Trouba, Josh Morrissey, Tucker Poolman, Brandon Tanev, Adam Lowry and Marko Dano need new deals.

Saving money on players the calibre of Hellebuyck and Scheifele will make keeping the Jets core intact easier and could ensure this Jets team remains a legitimate Cup contender for the foreseeable future.

Weekend FTB: One Swede down, one to go...

  Weekend FTB: One Swede down, one to go... Weekend FTB: One Swede down, one to goOn Friday, the Toronto Maple Leafs announced the low-key re-signing of Andreas Johnsson, who accepted his qualifying offer rather than trying to negotiate anything longer term. You may have seen one of the myriad of tweets that Johnsson is clearly “betting on himself” to have a good year, put up good numbers in his first full season when he was a year younger t, and get a much better contract going forward.

First and foremost, we have to wait for the [NHL salary] cap to be set. Getting goalie Connor Hellebuyck signed to a long-term contract is high on the Jets ' priority list. Each can sign a contract extension beginning July 1.

Winnipeg Jets . Comparables . Entry-Level Slides. Team Affiliates. Teams are permitted to buyout a players contract to obtain a reduced salary cap hit over a period of twice the remaining length of the contract . It is also possible that the buyout caphit can be negative, meaning the team receives a credit.

There are 24 goalies set to have a cap hit north of $4 million in 2018-19 and Hellebuyck is the youngest among them. In fact, he’ll only be 31 when this deal expires.

With all that in mind, here’s a look at a few of Hellebuyck’s contemporaries that are on similar deals.

Braden Holtby (five years, $30.5 million, $6.1-million cap hit)

Canadiens agree to terms with Armia on 1-year contract

  Canadiens agree to terms with Armia on 1-year contract The Montreal Canadiens agreed to terms with restricted free-agent winger Joel Armia on Friday, the team announced . The deal will pay Armia $1.85 million for the 2018-19 season.Armia was dealt to Montreal from the Winnipeg Jets along with goaltender Steve Mason on June 30 in exchange for defensive prospect Simon Bourque. The Finnish native played in 79 regular-season games for the Jets last campaign, registering 12 goals and 17 assists in 12:36 of ice time per night.

Anyway, Hellebuyck and Trouba aren’t likely to be cheap. The key will be to find the right compromise, whether that means a shorter deal or lowering cap hits with riskier, longer terms. That could be a tricky situation, as he’ll be 33 when his next contract kicks in.

Golden Knights center Karlsson, Jets goalie Hellebuyck , Wild defenseman Dumba, forward Zucker on list; hearings can begin July 20. Karlsson could be traded to Lightning: report. Defenseman, with contract offer from Senators, can seek extension elsewhere.

Holtby signed this deal in 2015 when he was 25, just like Hellebuyck. Holtby won the Vezina his first season after signing. The next year he was the Vezina runner-up and earned the William M. Jennings Trophy. The third year on his deal saw him lead the Washington Capitals to the franchise’s first Stanley Cup. Safe to say this deal has worked out swimmingly for the Caps thus far.

Keep in mind, Holtby’s $6.1-million AAV began in 2015 when the cap was lower than it currently is, so Hellebuyck has a friendlier cap hit relative to the market.

Semyon Varlamov (five years, $29.5 million, $5.9-million cap hit)

Questions still remain for Canada's NHL teams

  Questions still remain for Canada's NHL teams The NHL draft is in the rearview mirror and the biggest names are already off the free-agent market, but that doesn't mean there isn't more work to be done by general managers before training camps begin in September. Here is one glaring question that each of the seven Canadian teams need to address before next season.

A qualifying offer is an official Standard Player Contract (SPC) offer which shall be 1 year in length, and which can be subject to salary arbitration should the player be Maple Leafs Vancouver Canucks Vegas Golden Knights Washington Capitals Winnipeg Jets . 5,000. Hellebuyck , Connor.

Laine’s cap hit could very well reach the teens in millions, while Connor might not be easy to retain after coming off of a 30-goal rookie season. Do the Jets try to move Mason and shuffle in Michael Hutchinson or a different backup? Hellebuyck , even a richer version, is likely to be “the guy.”

If Hellebuyck were to follow a similar trajectory to Varlamov then Jets fans might be slightly disappointed with this deal a few years from now. Varlamov signed back in 2014 midway through what ended up being a career year for him. The Russian led the league in wins and saves that season but hasn’t been able to get back to the level at which he performed. Varlamov is now 30 as he enters the final year of his deal and his future with the Colorado Avalanche is somewhat of a mystery with the team trading for Philipp Grubauer and signing the former Capitals backup to a three-year deal.

Frederik Andersen (five years, $25 million, $5-million cap hit)

With rosters taking shape, here's 1 glaring question facing each Canadian NHL team

  With rosters taking shape, here's 1 glaring question facing each Canadian NHL team The NHL draft is in the rearview mirror and the biggest names are already off the free-agent market, but that doesn't mean there isn't more work to be done. Here is one glaring question that each of the seven Canadian teams need to address before next season. Who is going to be their top-line centre? General manager Marc Bergevin missed out on signing any of the league's big-named centres and found himself going back to Tomas Plekanec, who got his wish to return to Montreal after being dealt to Toronto at last season's trade deadline.

Andersen only had 90 starts under his belt before the Toronto Maple Leafs gave him a five-year deal after acquiring him from the Anaheim Ducks in 2016. Hellebuyck has started 143 games in the first three years of his NHL career so the Jets had a larger sample size to consider. Hellebuyck faces fewer shots than Andersen—literally every goalie does—and he’s got a better group of defencemen playing in front of him, so it’s not entirely surprising the Jets’ keeper posted better numbers than the Leafs’ backstopper but both are tasked with taking young, talented teams to the next level.

Sergei Bobrovsky (four years, $29.7 million, $7.425-million cap hit)

The Columbus Blue Jackets netminder already had a Vezina Trophy to his name when he earned this contract that expires in less than 12 months, so it’s no surprise he was rewarded with a significant cap hit—only Carey Price and Henrik Lundqvist have higher AAVs. Bobrovsky won his second Vezina in 2017 and the Blue Jackets have made the playoffs two years running so this, by all accounts, was a fair deal. Whether he gets a salary bump on his next deal will depend on how the 2018-19 campaign unfolds.

The four goalies listed above signed their deals when they were restricted free agents or pending RFAs. Below you’ll find a list of goalies with comparable contracts, except they all signed when they were UFAs, meaning they were all older than Hellebuyck and naturally had more risks involved.

— Cory Crawford (six years, $36 million, $6-million cap hit, signed at age 29)
