With just 29 days before the NHL free agency period, the Boston Bruins signed 23-year-old David Krejci to a multi-year extension. Although the terms of the deal have not been publicly disclosed, TSN.ca reports that, "The contract is a three-year deal at $3.5, $3.75, and $4-million per year, respectively."
Krejci, along with general manager Peter Chiarelli, will be addressing the media tomorrow afternoon via conference call.
Coming off a breakout year, Krejci led the NHL in plus-minus with a plus-36. His 73 points ranked second on the Bruins, and he was one of just three players to suit-up for all 82 games this season.
Krejci also played in all 11 playoff games in 2009, registering eight points.
Just less than one month remains before the free agency splash in the NHL. Peter Chiarelli and Co. still have a lot of work to do with their remaining UFA and RFA's before July 1—while having approximately $6 to $9 million remaining in the salary cap.
