NHL: Boston Bruins Sign G Tuukka Rask to 8-Year, $56 M Deal

Jul 10 2013, 7:40pm CDT | by

The Boston Bruins signed restricted free agent goaltender Tuukka Rask to an eight-year, $56 million contract on Wednesday.

The Boston Bruins signed restricted free agent goaltender Tuukka Rask to an eight-year, $56 million contract on Wednesday. 

According to ESPN Boston, Rask's salary is worth an annual cap figure of $7 million. The official NHL website confirms his deal is the longest allowed under the league's collective bargaining agreement in terms of a team re-signing its own player. 

He also joins the company of elite goaltenders who are all signed to lucrative deals with their respective teams. Among these are Pekka Rinne of the Nashville Predators ($7 million cap hit), Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers ($ 6.875 million), Carey Price of the Montreal Canadiens ($6.5 million), Jonathan Quick of the Los Angeles Kings ($5.8 million) and Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks ($5.3 million). 

Howard Ulman of the Associated Press writes there was no denying Rask would be back with the Bruins, especially after the team cleared $4.75 million in cap space when it dealt Tyler Seguin to the Dallas Stars in a seven-player trade last week. 

Two days after Boston lost to the Chicago Blackhawks in the Stanley Cup Finals, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli was confident a deal on Rask would get done.

"I feel confident that we will get a deal done on Rask in short order."

Ulman also quotes Rask as saying he would want to remain a Bruin "forever" on the very same day Chiarelli made his statement. 

In the lockout-shortened 2012-13 NHL season, the native of Tampere, Finland had a 19-10-5 record, a 2.00 GAA, a .929 save percentage and five shutouts. In 22 playoff games in 2013, Rask had a 1.88 GAA and a .920 save percentage.

3 things we learned from Boston's 2-1 win over Philadelphia

Oct 8 2014 10:07pm CDT | Source: SBNation

Patrice Bergeron did not score a goal for the Bruins in their season opener, but he was one of the biggest factors in their 2-1 win. The Philadelphia Flyers are one of the many Eastern Conference teams that could end up finishing the 2014-15 season in pretty much any position and it wouldn't be a shock. Playoffs? Given their forwards and power play, sure, it's possible. Somewhere near the bottom? Given their defense and goaltend ...
