To say that David Pastrnak has had an eventful 48 hours would be an understatement.
On Thursday morning, Pastrnak inked his six-year contract extension worth $40 million – a cap hit of $6.67 million per year. With his new payday, the 21-year-old took to Twitter to thank the Black and Gold along with a special member of his family.

Twenty-four hours after signing his new contract, Pastrnak spent all day flying from his native Czech Republic to Boston. He arrived at Logan Airport Friday evening all smiles.
At some point, Pastrnak is going to need some sleep, but that might have to wait. The fourth-year Bruin is expected to arrive at training camp on Saturday and is also scheduled to join Group B for the 10:15 skate at Warrior Ice Arena.
Give his payday, Pastrnak will probably be buying the rest of the team a pasta dinner. But for now, The Hub is certainly happy to witness his arrival after signing his new contract.
