The deal will average $3.083 million per year, after Danault made $832,500 last season. The agreement removes the need for an arbitration hearing, which was scheduled for this Friday.
He was a first-round pick of the Chicago Blackhawks in 2011, and was traded to Montreal in February 2016. In 155 games across three seasons with Montreal, Danault has 70 points (24 goals, 46 assists) and has averaged 15:31 of ice time.
