In a clear display of dedication, David Pastrnak solidified his commitment to the Bruins by inking an eight-year, $90 million deal.

With a consistent record of netting at least 40 goals, Pastrnak etched his name into Bruins history, finding himself in the top 20 for goals, hat tricks, assists, and points.

Pastrnak's shining moment came with a hat trick that echoed the feats of legends like Phil Esposito, making him the first Bruins player in nearly half a century to achieve 60 goals in a single season, harking back to Esposito's 61 goals in the 1974-75 season.

The icing on the cake was Boston's clinching of a new NHL record of 63 victories, achieved with a 5-3 triumph over the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on April 9.


Earning a coveted spot in the ranks of NHL leaders, Pastrnak secured second place in goals with an impressive 61, while also sharing third place in overall points (113) with Nikita Kucherov of the Tampa Bay Lightning.

This standout performance marked Pastrnak as a first-time contender for the prestigious Hart Trophy, an award that recognizes the NHL's most valuable player.
