The deal was not yet fully official earlier today, as Haas had only signed one of the two copies of his contract. However, as expected by Holland, the deal was completed early this evening. The forward has been signed to an entry-level deal. The average annual value has not yet been confirmed, but, according to CapFriendly, it will likely be $925,000.

Haas already confirmed last week to the Berner Zeitung that he would make use of his NHL out clause. The SC Bern player signed an early contract extension with the Bears (contract valid until 2021), in order to be able to put in an out clause into his deal.

In 50 regular season games, the 27-year-old forward recorded 15 goals and 23 assists. He also suited up for Switzerland at the World Championship, recording one goal and two assists in eight games.
