The Pittsburgh Penguins are expected to announce on Sunday that captain Sidney Crosby has signed a contract extension worth over $100 million with an average annual salary of close to $9 million.

Crosby, 24, was entering the final season of a five-year, $43.5 million US contract extension signed in 2007.

For each of the first four seasons of the last extension, Crosby was paid $9 million, and $7.5 million in 2012-2013.

More to follow.

Crosby #'s starting to surface. The first 3 years are at $12M. He will make close but below $11M AAV the first 9 years of 12 year deal. #TSN

Big $$ in Crosby deal will come in first 9 yrs. Final 3 yrs likely to be worth $3-$4M per yr. Means he'll get $10M+ for each of 1st 9 yrs.

@TSNBobMcKenzie

Long way off, but Crosby would have to decide if he wants to play at age 36, 37 or 38 for $3M-$4M per yr after making $10M+ for previous 9.
