Earlier today TSN’s Hockey Insider Darren Dreger reported that the Boston Bruins and forward David Pastrnak have got closer in negotiations on a new contract extension as the young talented forward’s entry-level deal expired earlier this summer. Dreger also posted some fantastic news moments ago reporting that the B’s and Pasta have agreed on a new six-year deal with details provided below.

With long offseason season talks and a Bruins fan base on the verge of picketing outside TD Garden in Boston for the heads of B’s management and ownership, it’s nice to have a deal done with the training camp festivities starting today with off-ice physicals to start of the four-day camp. The next three days of camp will be held at the Warrior Ice Arena in Brighton, Massachusetts and is open to the public.

Although the many potential contract numbers were all over the board this summer, a deal for six-years and a cap hit of $6.6 million proves that Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney and ownership really weren’t interested in going higher than the proposed $6 million that the Bruins have offered him all offseason. Pastrnak is and will be a key member of this organization moving forward in the attempt to rebuild or retool a winner in Boston.

After posting 34-36-70 career numbers last season and 123 points in 172 career National Hockey League games the sky’s the limit for this talented young man that has always wanted to be a part of the growth of this franchise and a city he adores off the ice.  This is a great day in Bruins Nation, and with the 2017-18 season vastly approaching, I look forward to seeing where this team can go after their first appearance in the Stanley Cup Playoffs and if they have the pieces that have remained to make a second round playoff goal a reality.

About Mark Allred Jr

Long-time Boston Bruins fan and former beer league goaltender for over 30-years on the ice, Inline, and Dek-Hockey throughout New England. Retired and needed a hobby so writing about the B's talent in the lower levels of developmental hockey is my favorite topic and main focus. It's important to know about tomorrow's stars today in my opinion.

    Although I still like Phil Kessel, I hope David doesn’t decide that all of a sudden he doesn’t like or want to play in Boston in a year or two.
