    Boychuk stays in the fold for two

    Joe Makarski June 24, 2010

    Boston Bruins confirmed that the club has inked defenseman Johnny Boychuk to a two-year deal. As per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. However, ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun reports the deal is worth $3.75M, with $1.75M due to the 26-year-old this season, and $2M in 2011-12—a cap hit of $1.875M over the course of the contract.

    Boychuk, in his first season in the NHL, recorded 5-10-15 totals in 56 regular season games, with a plus-10 rating and 96 shots on goal. In 13 post season appearances, No. 55 posted 2-4-6, Even, and 32 shots on net.

    With Boychuk now signed—and the sole right-handed shot now on the point—he’ll re-join his Bruins’ back-end teammates of Zdeno Chara, Dennis Seidenberg, Matt Hunwick, and Andrew Ference for the 2010-11 NHL season; with RFA Mark Stuart being the only full-time blue-liner yet unsigned.

      Johnny has proved to the Boston Fans and the team that he deserves to continue to be a Bruin. His exceptional play during the playoffs was a clear statement “that he is NHL ready” The 2-yr deal today confirms this and now the Bruins are much better moving into the 2010-2011 season !
