In 10 postseason games this year, the 42-year-old has registered six goals and three assists for nine points, becoming a primary contributor on Boston’s offense and in the dressing room.
Barry Pederson and Gord Kluzak discussed his impact on Monday’s edition of Bruins Face-Off Live.
“He’s playing like he’s 24 years old,” Pederson said. “This was supposed to be his last season, but he’s been such an important part of this team leadership-wise, also scoring very timely goals. I have a feeling they may have to re-sign this guy.”
Kluzak agreed whole-heartedly, noting that Recchi finished the regular season with 18 goals and 25 assists in 81 games.
“It’s not just the playoffs — this guy’s been great all year long,” he said. “Tuukka Rask won the Seventh Player [Award], but I’m sure Recchi would’ve been second in voting. Even out in warmups, he’s got more jump than anyone else. He’s got more energy than anyone. … It’s so much fun to watch.”
