Surprising Player Reveals True Feelings Towards Bruins In Recent Statement

Pending unrestricted free agent Jake DeBrusk has made it clear that his priority is securing a deal with the Boston Bruins, reaffirming his consistent desire to remain with the team. Hailing from Canada, DeBrusk highlights his deep connection to the city and expresses a strong aspiration to win a Stanley Cup with the Bruins.

While Bruins' General Manager Don Sweeney has adhered to his rule of not discussing contract negotiations, the preseason quote stands as the last direct comment on the potential extension for DeBrusk. The Bruins winger is eyeing a substantial pay raise from his current $4 million cap hit. Speculations suggest a minimum six-year, $30 million contract, a significant investment that could shape the team's future.

As the negotiations unfold, the looming question is whether Sweeney, known for his decisive moves, will follow the pattern he set two years ago. Back then, at the 2022 NHL Trade Deadline, Sweeney secured DeBrusk with a two-year, $8 million contract. With the approaching March 8, 2024, NHL Trade Deadline, all eyes will be on whether history repeats itself, and DeBrusk is signed once again by the Bruins. Stay tuned for updates on this evolving contract saga.
