It will be “Celly SZN” in Boston for at least two more years.
The Bruins on Monday announced they re-signed restricted free agent Jake DeBrusk. The new contract for DeBrusk — the 15th overall pick by the B’s in 2015 — is for two years with an annual salary-cap hit of $3.675 million, per the team.
Shortly after the deal was announced, DeBrusk took to Instagram to share his excitement and thank the Bruins organization, his teammates and his family. A few B’s players made their way into the post’s comment section, including David Pastrnak, who delivered a friendly jab.
“Eyooo congrats my man !” Pastrnak wrote. “Maybe now you can pay dinner once in a while.”
It remains to be seen when DeBrusk, Pastrnak and the rest of the Bruins will take the ice for the start of the 2020-21 season. But a canceled campaign apparently isn’t something hockey fans have to worry about, as a recent report indicated the NHL not staging the new season is “off the table.”
