Following an offseason of contract discussions, Boston Bruins forward David Pastrnak got himself paid, inking a six-year $40 million deal on Thursday to stick with the team through 2022-23.
The signing provided a sigh of relief for the Bruins, their fans and Pastrnak, who finished second on the team with 34 goals and 70 points in 2016-17 in his third season.
Flush with cash, the 21-year-old winger was all set up to hit the town and celebrate with his teammates, right?
Wrong. He revealed the not-so-fancy first purchase he made since his mega-deal:
So, @pastrnak96, what’s the first big thing you’re going to buy?

Well, if he wasn’t a foodie before, at least we all now know he’s got the money to become one now.
