Specifics of Kennedy's Extension Deal

As reported in a previous post, Tyler Kennedy was signed to a two-year extension deal. Kennedy was set to become a restricted free agent after the upcoming 2008-2009 season. I came across the following specifics of the deal:

Earnings through 2011
2008-2009: $550,000
2009-2010: $600,000
2010-2011: $850,000
"I know I have to work hard to stay here," Kennedy said. "I want to work hard and put some points up and be a contributor."
I really like Kennedy's attitude about the whole situation. Even after getting an extension from the Penguins, he still wants to work hard and seems to remain grounded; doesn't let it go to his head (you gotta love that)!! All the more reason why he deserves to wear a Penguins jersey and why I like this kid!!
