The Boston Bruins had 11 players make their Stanley Cup playoffs debut this season before they were knocked out in the first round by the Ottawa Senators.

One of those players was forward David Pastrnak, who had a career year in the 2016-17 season scoring 34 goals and dishing out 36 assists.

Pastrnak will become a restricted free agent on July 1st, but Bruins president Cam Neely is “confident” the team can get a deal done with the star forward.
