The Bruins have signed Brad Marchand to an eight-year deal worth $49 million ($6.125M AAV).
Marchand, 28, is coming off of a career-high 37 goals and 60 points. The Canadian-born winger has scored 20-plus goals in every full 82-game season that he has played in and is in a great spot on Patrice Bergeron’s wing out in Boston. He has had a very strong showing in the World Cup of Hockey which shows last year may not be a fluke.
Marchand (concussion) will be back in the Bruins lineup on Saturday.
Marchand missed two games with a concussion but he will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Coyotes. He has no points and seven shots on goal in two games. With Marchand back, Brett Connolly will be scratched.
