Defenseman Kris Letang has rejected one of the largest contract offers in the Penguins history.
Letang declined an eight-year contract that would have paid him around $54 million (total) late Thursday, sources told the Tribune-Review.
However, his agent, Kent Hughes, stressed Letang remains only interested in playing for the Penguins.
Kunitz agreed to a three-year contract that would keep him with the Penguins through the 2016-17 season.
His new deal is for three years at a total of $11.55 million. He will receive a $125,000 annual raise on his current deal, which runs through next season. His salary-cap hit on the new deal is $3.85 million.
