It's all smiles in Boston right now
Per BostonBruins.comBOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed forward David Krejci to a multi-year contract extension. Per club policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed. Chiarelli and Krejci will be available to the media via conference call on Wednesday, June 3.
Krejci established a career high in games played, goals, assists and points this season with 22-51-73 totals in 82 games. His 51 assists ranked him second on the team behind Marc Savard, and he led the NHL with a plus/minus rating of +36. In 2009, Krejci also received the Bruins Seventh Player Award, given to the player who performs above and beyond expectations.
My sources, however, have informed me that the deal is a 3 year deal worth 11.5 million dollars. That's is a phenominal contract for such a young player. Krejci should be a staple in the Bruins offense this year and hopefully continue to mature into the playmaker we've seen at the end of the 07-08 season and throughout this one.
Huge re-signing for the Bruins!
