Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has been officially signed to a
contract in Europe. According to ESPN, the 25-year-old Finnish star will play for HC Plzen, and joins
teammate Andrew Ference as the second Bruin to commit to a Czech team.
Rask, who will take over as starting goalie for the Bruins
if and when the season gets under way, is scheduled to make $3.5 million with the
Bruins this season after signing a one-year extension this past offseason.
As is true with most European contracts, Rask reserves the
right to terminate his deal if and when a new collective bargaining agreement is reached.
