Boston Bruins trying to re-sign Austin Czarnik

The Boston Bruins are currently in the middle of their playoff battle against the Tampa Bay Lightning. 

The B's are up 1-0 in the series and will look to make it 2-0 on Monday night. 

While the team on the ice is focused on the series, it looks like Bruins general manager Don Sweeney is working on getting the team set up for next year. 

According to Mark Divver of the Providence Journal, the Bruins have been in constant contact with Austin Czarnik's agent trying to get a contract extension done. 

The 25 year old is set to be a UFA this summer and would definitely capture some attention after putting up 69 points in 64 games this past season in the AHL. 

With Rick Nash, Riley Nash, Tim Schaller, Tommy Wingels and Brian Gionta all UFA's this offseason, Czarnik might have a spot on the roster next season. 

Would you like to see the Bruins keep Czarnik in the organization?
