Penguins forward Evgeni Malkin signed an 8-year, $76 million extension to remain in Pittsburgh on Thursday, according to NHL.com, citing an announcement from Executive Vice President and General Manager Ray Shero.

The deal will begin in 2014-15 and expires in 2021-22, paying the 6-foot-3, 215-pound Russian native $9.5 million per season.

MUIR: Penguins give Dan Bylsma, assistant coaches, two-year extensions

A year removed from winning the Art Ross Trophy (leading scorer), Hart Trophy (NHL MVP) and Ted Lindsay Award (NHLPA most outstanding player), Malkin, who turns 27 next month, is now one of only three Penguins in franchise history  (Mario Lemieux and Jaromir Jagr) to win multiple Art Ross Trophies.

Despite zero points against a Boston Bruins team that swept the Penguins in the Eastern Conference Finals, Malkin, who helped Pittsburgh to a win in the Stanley Cup Finals in 2009, remains one of the top players in hockey alongside Sidney Crosby.
