The Boston Bruins have signed defenseman Charlie McAvoy to an eight-year contract extension worth a grand total of $76M.
McAvoy was selected with the 14th overall pick in the 2016 NHL Entry Draft by the Bruins. Since joining the team in the 2017-2018 season, McAvoy has played in 235 games for the gold and black. He’s also netted 24 goals and tallied 122 points in that time frame.
McAvoy, arguably the top defenseman in the NHL, now has the price tag to match that statement. Bob McKenzie of TSN breaks down the 23-year-old’s contract:
