The Dallas Stars announced today that they have reached an agreement with one of their players on a huge contract extension. Roope Hintz, one of the league's most underrated players, just won the big one, as he was given an eight-year, $8.45M per season contract.

Stars GM Jim Nill had some good words for the 26-year-old Finnish forward to justify the huge deal.
Roope is a dynamic two-way centre who has proven to be one of the best at his position in the NHL. He has become one of our most versatile players, making an impact on special teams and at even strength, and our coaching staff can count on him in any situation." - Jim Nill

Of course, the trend is to offer long, high-paying deals to your young players, but at 26, it can be a very big gamble. It looks like Nill has forgotten the big contracts he offered Jamie Benn and Tyler Seguin at a similar age.
