The Tampa Bay Lightning were unable to come to terms with veteran forward Alex Killorn ahead of free agency on Saturday, and this will give you a pretty good idea why.

According to a report from National Hockey League insider Pierre LeBrun, the Anaheim Ducks have just signed Killorn to a very lucrative deal worth a whopping $25 million. Killorn will earn that money over the course of the next 4 years, which works out to an average annual value of $6.25 million per season.

Killorn had more goals last season than any other players available on the free agent market with 27, and that no doubt played a significant role in the massive deal he has signed. Killorn had those goals as well as 37 assists last season finishing with a total of 64 points over 82 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This is the first contract that Killorn has signed that is with a team other than the Lightning.
