David Pastrnak finally signs his long awaited extension with Boston
It is finally done! The Boston Bruins have finally extended their star forward David Pastrnak after months of negotiations. Pastrnak was set to enter free agency this offseason as his previous six-year contract worth $40 million was expiring this summer. Pastrnak will get a deal worth $90 million over eight years. He will earn an average annual salary of $11.25 million, according to Pierre LeBrun.
This deal has been coming along for the past few months as Pastrnak’s agent JP Barry and the Bruins’ front office have been negotiating since September. Via Pierre LeBrun. I am sure all Bruins fans can take a deep breath with the extension of Pastrnak.
In his contract, Pastrnak will earn a $26.5 million dollar signing bonus. His average annual salary will slowly decrease in salary as he gets deeper into his contract.
The 6 foot 1, 195 pound winger has spent his entire career with the Bruins. He has played 570 total game and has recorded 584 points. He has 282 goals and 302 helpers with almost 2,000 shots.
In the season, Pastrnak is leading all Bruins players in points, goals, assists, power play goals, power play points, game-winning goals, overtime goals, and shots. Currently Pastrnak has 42 goals and 38 assists for a total of 80 points in the season. Also noting, he is in an entirely different universe in terms of shots this season. Pastrnak has 285 shots this season and the next closest Bruin only has 194.
Boston general manager Don Sweeney has been very active with this trade deadline including extending Pastrnak. Earlier this morning, the Bruins completed a trade for Detroit’s Tyler Bertuzzi. For more trade details on Bertuzzi’s acquisition, click here.
