The Los Angeles Kings have re-signed winger Tanner Pearson to a four-year contract extension, the club announced Tuesday.

Pearson’s new deal is worth an annual average of $3.75 million and comes on the heels of the winger’s most productive season to date. It’s also a hefty raise from the $1.4 million he earned in 2016-17.

Pearson, a 2012 first-round pick of the Kings, turned heads this past campaign, notching 24 goals and 20 helpers.

Forty-four points at age 24 isn’t too shabby, and if the Kitchener, Ontario, native continues to impress, his next raise will be even more significant.
