Are the Boston Bruins and superstar winger David Pastrnak closing in on a new contract extension?
That, more Bruins and NHL news, and NHL trade rumors in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:
The Boston Bruins are reportedly ‘getting closer’ on agreeing to a new contract extension with superstar winger David Pastrnak.
Jake DeBrusk (hand, lower-body injury), may have skated on Monday but that doesn’t mean that the Boston Bruins will rush him back from injury.
With DeBrusk and center Tomas Nosek out of the lineup, the Boston Bruins have been giving some of their top prospects time on their NHL lineup. On Monday, forward Marc McLaughlin became the latest Providence Bruins player to get called up to the show this season.
The Boston Bruins are not just getting offense from their blue line recently, but they’re getting offense of the finesse variety as well. Example A would be the goals Charlie McAvoy and Hampus Lindholm scored this past Sunday.
