'The Ageless Wonder' Mark Recchi Continues to Impress When Peter Chiarelli traded for Mark Recchi prior to the 2009 NHL trade deadline, nobody expected the veteran to impact the roster the way he has.

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.”
