The Pittsburgh Penguins are bringing back defenseman Jamie Oleksiak on a three-year contract worth $6,412,500, the club announced Thursday.

Oleksiak’s new pact carries an average annual value of $2,137,500, or more than twice the $964,688 he earned in 2017-18, according to CapFriendly.

He was a restricted free agent.

The 25-year-old chipped in 14 points in 47 games for the Penguins after being acquired from the Dallas Stars in December.
