The Bruins standoff with David Pastrnak is over.
The team announced today that they have signed their restricted free agent to a six-year deal worth an average annual value of $6.67 million.
The pact will make Pastrnak a Bruin through the 2022-23 season.
The 21-year-old right winger scored a career-high 34 goals last season. He added 36 assists and had a plus-11 rating in 75 games. In his three seasons with the team, Pastrnak has appeared in 172 games, compiling 59 goals and 64 assists for 123 points.
The sides appeared at a stalemate with Pastrnak’s side reportedly using Edmonton’s eight-year, $68 million deal for Leon Draisaitl as a comparable.
Nevertheless, today’s deal puts the talented Czech winger in the fold in time for the opening of traning camp today.
