Tuukka Rask agrees to one-year, $3.5 million extension

Tuukka Rask has agreed in principle to a one-year, $3.5 million extension.

Rask will officially sign the contract on Sunday. On the same day, Chris Kelly will sign his four-year, $12 million contract.

Rask will be a restricted free agent at the end of his extension. Based on the one-year extension, it appears both sides are treating 2012-13 as the season in which Rask can establish himself for a long-term deal.

TSN first reported the extension.
