Letunov secured a one-year, two-way contract extension with San Jose on Thursday that will earn him $700,000 at the NHL level, CapFriendly reports.
Letunov was selected by the team in the second round of the 2014 NHL Draft after a three-year career with the University of Connecticut. The center recorded 12 goals and 16 assists in his first professional season with AHL San Jose in 2018-19.
