Sissons is sticking around
We expected this deal to happen, but it’s still reassuring to know Colton Sissons will be sticking around for the foreseeable future. He’s been steadily progressing in the right direction, and set career highs in points, goals and plus/minus. What he does to impact the game can’t be measured by just those statistics. He makes his linemates better as well.
Sissons gets a seven-year deal worth $20 million that will hopefully keep him here to the 2025-26 season.. Keeping him in Nashville for several years to come keeps the bottom six strong, and will allow us to see him on this team as he goes through the peak part of his career. I believe the best is yet to come.
The versatility of Sissons is another valuable part of his game. He primarily plays center, but he can be moved around and play on the wing as well. He did that last season throughout the rash of injuries the team dealt with. Great work getting him locked up so we can witness him continue to progress into a solid player.
