Center Brad Marchand Signs $18M Extension With Boston Bruins

The Bruins and Brad Marchand have agreed to terms for a contract extension that will keep the center in Boston through the 2016-2017 season. The Halifax native will receive $4.5 million per year, which is $2 million better than his previous contract. The new deal will begin during the 2012-13 NHL season.

Marchand scored a career-high 28 goals last season, just one less than team-leader Tyler Seguin. Playing in 76 games for the Bruins, his plus-31 rating was good for fifth in the league. Marchand was particularly instrumental in Boston's 2011 Stanley Cup run, when the then-rookie contributed 11 goals and eight assists in 25 postseason games on the road to the championship.

Marchand was selected in the third round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Bruins.
