NESN will be broadcasting live as Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli officially announces the extension, which will keep Boston's perennial points leader in Black and Gold through the 2016-17 season. Bruins head coach Claude Julien will also be present at the news conference, which will take place at the TD Garden following the team's morning skate.
Savard, 32, has been a member of the Bruins since July 1, 2006, and has led the team in scoring each of the last three seasons. Savard has played in two straight NHL All-Star Games and has twice finished in the top 10 in the league in scoring.

This season, Savard has 10 points in 11 games, despite missing over a month of action due to a broken foot.
