It seems more and more likely that Taylor Hall remains in Boston.
According to TSN's Darren Dreger, the Bruins and Hall are putting the "finishing touches" on a four-year deal worth close to $24 million. A deal could be finalized as soon as Thursday.
Many looking forward to this. More than a few GM’s curious given a few of Seattle’s expansion draft selections. Also, finishing touches on Hall’s new contract with Boston likely cleaned up tomorrow. Should come in at 4 years and close to $24 million total. https://t.co/HJejVbJEpN— Darren Dreger (@DarrenDreger) July 22, 2021
The news comes after Sportnet's Elliotte Friedman reported earlier this week that the Bruins and Hall were "gaining momentum" on a new contract.
Hall hinted last month that he might be willing to take a discount to remain in Boston. He was arguably the Bruins' best trade-deadline acquisition, as he scored eight goals and tallied 14 points in 16 regular-season games while adding three goals and five points in 11 postseason games.
In addition to Hall, the Bruins also need new deals for David Krejci and Tuukka Rask, among others.
