The biggest off-season story for the Boston Bruins now has a conclusion as the team and forward David Pastrnak have agreed to a contract extension.

Pastrnak was a restricted free agent this off-season, but was not given an offer by another NHL team due to the high amount compensation that would be sent back to the Bs.  During the 2016-17 season, Pastrnak posted 34 goals and 70 points in 75 games played for the Bruins.  The 21-year old also scored two goals in six playoff games with Boston this past spring.  In his career he has 59 goals and 123 points in 172 NHL games.

The Bs will square off versus Montreal in an exhibition on Monday, while the first regular season game will be on October 5th versus Nashville.
