Tommy Wingels had a breakout season with the San Jose Sharks last year and he’s reportedly going to be rewarded for it.

Our friends at CSNBayArea.com report Wingels has agreed to a three-year deal with the Sharks. Wingels is coming off a two-year contract that paid $1.55 million and he’ll be due for a raise.

UPDATE (7/7/14 12:05 p.m. ET): A raise is just what he got. Kevin Kurz at CSNBayArea.com reports it’s a three-year, $7.4 million deal.

Wingels, 26, had 16 goals and 38 points in 77 games last season — all of which were career-highs. With the Sharks in need of added scoring depth, he stepped up in a big way and was also a clutch player for them leading the team with seven game-winning goals.

Wingels found some chemistry with Patrick Marleau last season which likely helped boost his offensive numbers. With the Sharks opting to hold steady with their roster for the most part, Wingels is set up to pick up where he left off.

    Doug Wilson probably should be fired. You think signing Wingels to an extension makes up for signing Scott? Come on now.

    Still waiting in the we’re serious about wanting to win a Cup move by Wilson. This team is exactly the same as last years, no shake up means continuous failures.. Good luck next year San Jose fans.

    Pirovash88 the team will be different. Not significant changes but the dumping of Havlat, Boyle, Stuart, McCarthy will be a big boost. Wilson shouldn’t just trade 2 of their top point producers for bags of pucks. Sharks just wouldn’t get enough in return to replace their offense.
