So far in Barzal’s career, he has tallied 59 goals and 148 assists for 207 points in 234 games. That is almost a point per game for the young stud. Impressive.
This is huge news for the Islanders and their fans. Their superstar in the making is officially under contract and is ready to rock and roll for the season. The average per season is $7 million. No need for the Barzal trade rumors to continue. He is there to stay on Long Island.
