The Winnipeg Jets have extended the contract of Mark Scheifele for eight years.

The hockey club announced the $49 million contract ($6.125M AAV) on Friday.

The Kitchener center set a career-high with 61 points in 2015-16. He also tallied a career-best 29 goals to go along with 32 assists in 71 games.

During a conference call with media, Scheifele said the first big purchase he’s going to make will be a dinner for family and his agent.
