Zdeno Chara will anchor the Boston Bruins defense for at least another season.

The Bruins on Saturday announced a one-year, $2 million extension with the 42-year-old defenseman. Chara could earn an extra $1.75 million in performance bonuses.

Bruins Twitter reacted to the news with this appropriate tweet:

Chara is in the midst of his 13th season in Black and Gold. The towering Slovak has four goals and seven assists through 55 games.

Chara has played in a whopping 948 game with the Bruins, and 1,478 total games over the course of his likely Hall-of-Fame career.
