Amid uncertainties reflected in fluctuating NHL betting odds, Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk has reiterated his desire to extend his contract with the team.

In an exclusive interview with Boston Hockey Now, the 27-year-old expressed eagerness to continue contributing to the Spoked B beyond the current season. Eligible for unrestricted free agency on July 1, DeBrusk emphasized his commitment to securing a seventh Stanley Cup victory for the historic Original 6 team, stating,

"Yeah, of course," Debrusk added quick. "That's what I've been consistent with since – I think the first time I was asked was in the summer – but yeah. This is all I know, and I grew up here and have obviously evolved and grown in different ways. It's one of those things where I want to win here. We were one game away in '19, and I want to win a Cup here in Boston. So that's my complete focus."

DeBrusk's consistent stance on remaining with the Bruins dates back to last August, expressing hope to stay with the team he grew up with.

"I'm hoping to stay (with the Boston Bruins). It's the only team that I know and the team that I grew up with," DeBrusk told NHL.com last August. "Hopefully, it goes in that direction, and we'll see how it goes."

His recent on-ice performance, tallying 12 goals and 13 assists in 46 games, reinforces his dedication. Despite a recent 3-2 defeat to the Carolina Hurricanes ending his three-game goal streak, DeBrusk's versatility, with seven goals and seven assists in the last 15 games, has made him a valuable asset under head coach Jim Montgomery. Montgomery praised DeBrusk's recent performances, noting it as the 'best version' of the player he has witnessed since taking over as the Bruins' head coach.
