Pittsburgh has locked-up the 2003 #1 pick for the next seven years. The deal is worth $35-million over seven years (that's $5-million per season). The contract will also trigger a no-move and limited no-trade clause in 2010-2011 season.

Goalie prime is usually mid-to-late 20's so Fleury at 23 is considered young. He really took off after missing 27 games with a high ankle sprain - the rest did him well. The pressure on the Pens next season will be huge as they are already expected to reappear in the Stanley Cup Finals.
