Boychuk said the decision to re-sign with the Bruins wasn’t a difficult one.
“I like Boston, I like the fans, I like the team, I like the coaching staff,” he said. “It was just the fact of just talking with the Bruins and settling a deal, and we got it done.”
Boychuk’s extension is for two years, $3.75 million.
The 26-year-old said that playing alongside a player like Zdeno Chara helped him out tremendously this past season.
