Bruins Chalkboard: How Clifton’s Hockey Sense Is Effective (BHN+)



Boston Bruins

“Cliffy Hockey” as they call will be returning to Boston as the Bruins have signed defenseman Connor Clifton to a three-year contract extension worth $3 million. Clifton, 23, is entering the final year of his entry-level contract that will pay him $725k and will now have the stability of a new contract that will keep him with the Bruins until 2023.

Clifton was a depth defenseman for the Bruins this past season as the Bruins made it all the way to the Stanley Cup Final, falling one victory short. Even though Clifton only appeared in 19 regular season games, he made an impact once the Stanley Cup Playoffs started as the Bruins dealt with an injury to Kevan Miller.
