As per annoying policy, financial terms were not announced, however MLive’s Ansar Khan immediately reported that it carries a $3.3 million salary cap hit. From the term and salary, this qualifies as a “bridge deal” under which Mantha will be expected to further prove himself before cashing in on a bigger contract.
With Mantha signed, Dylan Larkin is now the Red Wings’ lone remaining unsigned restricted free agent.
