Bruins agree to long-term agreement with Providence


With the likely departure of the Manchester Monarchs for the West Coast coming in the next few years, many local fans have harbored hope that Manchester might become the affiliate for the Boston Bruins. For the foreseeable, that won’t be happening. The Bruins announced Wednesday that they have agreed to a long-term extension with the Providence Bruins to remain the team’s AHL affiliate. The length of the deal was not disclosed...

Bergeron happy to see Pastrnak on the ice

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Training camp is still two weeks away, but David Pastrnak has already sparked excitement for the Boston Bruins. The team’s first-round pick (No. 25 overall) at last June’s NHL Entry Draft, the 18-year-old forward showcased his ability during the Bruins' development camp in July, and now he’s been in town and skating with his future teammates in order to have a better chance of earning a roster spot when camp breaks...

Patrice Bergeron leading the way

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Patrice Bergeron stood on the ice Tuesday at Ristuccia Arena, holding a stopwatch and yelling out drills. It was the first of many informal captain's practices for Bruins players, prospects and other local NHL players before training camps officially begin later this month. Bergeron led a large group of players, including teammates Tuukka Rask, Dennis Seidenberg, Daniel Paille, Adam McQuaid and Chris Kelly, who participated in the hour-and-a-half session...

No. 1 pick Pastrnak hopes early arrival helps

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- There's going to be plenty of focus on David Pastrnak. The Boston Bruins selected the skilled forward with the team's first pick (No. 25 overall) in June's NHL entry draft, and the 18-year-old native of the Czech Republic already seems to have the personality, intelligence and ability to handle everything that comes with playing in Boston. The Bruins thought it best for Pastrnak to start skating with NHL players as soon as possible, so he arrived in Boston last Wednesday in order to prepare for the organization's upcoming training camp...

Kelly excited to return after back surgery

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The crippling sensation Boston Bruins forward Chris Kelly felt when his back locked up on him on April 8 forced him to miss the remaining four games of the regular season and both rounds of the Stanley Cup playoffs. Prior to the injury, he had started to feel something different in his right glutes, but he thought it was due more to fatigue than anything else, after the team played 16 games in March following the Olympic break...

McQuaid feeling good, ready to 'push it'

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- Bruins defenseman Adam McQuaid was limited to 30 games during the 2013-2014 season due to quad and ankle injuries. After he had surgery in May on his right ankle, his goal was to be ready for training camp. The 27-year-old blueliner only recently began skating again, but he believes he’ll be ready for the start of the season. “I think so, I really do,” McQuaid said. “I’m feeling good and I’m finally to a point where I can push it. We still have a month before the season starts, and I look at where I was a month ago to where I’m at now, I do feel really good about it.”

Bruins give David Krejci extension

David Krejci and the Boston Bruins have agreed on a six-year deal worth $43.5 million that will start in 2015-16, a source confirmed to ESPN.com's Pierre LeBrun. Krejci has one year remaining on his current three-year, $15.75 million deal. Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli indicated at the start of the offseason that re-signing Krejci would be a priority before he became a free agent after this upcoming season. WEEI.com earlier reported the deal.

The 28-year-old, top-line center produced one of his most consistent seasons during 2013-14. He finished with 19 goals and 50 assists for 69 points in 80 regular-season games. He also led the league with a plus-39 rating...

Krejci deal makes perfect sense

Many believed it would happen. But you don’t trade a talented player such as Krejci. You sign him to a long-term deal -- and that’s exactly what the Bruins have done. Krejci and the Bruins have agreed on a six-year extension worth $43.5 million that will start in 2015-16, a league source confirmed to ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun. When WEEI.com’s DJ Bean first broke the news of Krejci’s new contract on Wednesday, some reaction on social media was that general manager Peter Chiarelli gave Boston’s top-line center too juicy of a deal, especially given that Krejci did not produce a single goal during the team’s 12 games in the Stanley Cup playoffs this past spring...

Bergeron: Krejci signing 'speaks volume'

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Boston Bruins officially announced Thursday that they have agreed on a six-year, $43.5 million contract extension with forward David Krejci. The new deal begins at the start of the 2015-2016 season. While it’s a smart move for both the Bruins and Krejci, the organization’s investment extends into the team’s locker room. It proves to the rest of the players that ownership and management believe in this group of core players and realize how important Krejci’s presence on the top line is to the success of the team...

Fraser agrees to one-year deal with B's

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The Boston Bruins announced Friday that they have come to terms with forward Matt Fraser on a one-year, two-way deal for the 2014-2015 season. “It’s nice to get it done and know you have a job, and it gives you a little more incentive to work harder, so it’s definitely nice to get it done,” Fraser said. Fraser sparked the Bruins during the Stanley Cup playoffs last spring when he was called up from Providence of the AHL and scored an overtime goal to help Boston to a 1-0 win over the Montreal Canadiens in Game 4 of the second-round series...
