Adam Erne

Age: 26

2021 Stats

GP: 45

G: 11

A: 9

PTS: 20

2021 Salary: $997,500

Status

Adam Erne has earned a contract extension.  He was the highest goal scorer on the Red Wings this year.  He is a tenacious forechecker and hard worker who Yzerman will most likely protect in the upcoming expansion draft.  Being that Erne was brought to Detroit by Yzerman via from Tampa Bay,  there is a strong connection between the player and management which means a deal will certainly get done.

Prediction

Adam Erne is signed to a two year contract for $3.2 million with an annual cap hit of $1.6 million.
