The Bruins announced on Friday that the team has signed forward Brad Marchand to a four-year
worth an average of $4.5 million annually through the 2016-17 season.
Marchand notched NHL career highs in goals (28), assists (27) and points (55) to go along with 87 penalty minutes in 76
games during the 2011-12 season — just his second full season in the NHL. His 28 goals ranked second on the Bruins, behind Tyler Seguin (29). He was also ranked fifth in the league with a plus-31 rating.
The 5-foot-9, 183-pound winger poured in 11 goals in 25 games and added eight assists en route to the 2011 Stanley Cup championship.
