Originally written June 29, 2013 on The Nosebleeds:
According to reports from several sources, the Bruins are closing in on a long-term contract extension with forward Patrice Bergeron. Bergeron still has one year remaining on his current deal but the Bruins want to lock him up long-term before that deal expires. TSN’s Bob McKenzie is reporting that Bergeron’s new deal will likely be for eight years at around $6.5 million per. On potential BOS moves, B’s have contract/financial work to do. Bergeron likely to get an 8 yr extension worth $6.5M+/yr. — Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) June 29, 2013 Bergeron, 27, was selected 45th overall by the Bruins as an 18-year old back in 2003 and has been with the team ever since. A current alternate captain (and undoubtedly the Bruins next team captain), Bergeron has established himself as one of the best two-way forwards in the game (won the 2012 Selke) and one of the strongest leaders on the Bruins. It seems pretty clear that Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli’s two main priorities this offseason are re-signing goalie Tuukka Rask and getting a Bergeron extension done. It looks like he’s pretty close to checking off both of those tasks. The post Bruins closing in on long-term extension for Patrice Bergeron appeared first on The Nosebleeds.
