With the NHL’s new owners coming on board, the league is set to bring in some of its top talent.
According to the Associated Press, the Philadelphia Flyers are among the teams that are expected to sign former Dallas Stars captain Patrick Sharp to a three-year contract worth $2.8 million per season.
Sharp is a six-time Stanley Cup winner with the Blackhawks and is a two-time Olympic gold medalist.
He is also the highest-paid player in the NHL.
In the last two seasons, Sharp has won two Hart trophies with the Stars and was named the league’s Most Valuable Player in 2016.
In 2018, Sharp led the NHL with 39 goals, including 25 goals in the Stanley Cup Final against the Detroit Red Wings.
He also had eight assists, including a game-winner against the Los Angeles Kings in Game 5 of the 2017 Stanley Cup Finals.
Sharp is currently on the NHL roster for the 2018-19 season.
He signed a three year deal worth $3.2 million per year, according to Sportsnet.
A second-round pick in 2016, Sharp was drafted to the NHL as a 19-year-old in 2015.
In his rookie season, he had one goal and nine assists in 38 games.
