The Boston Bruins signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year, $16 million extension on Thursday.

The Boston Bruins signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year, $16 million extension on Thursday.

Seidenberg's re-signing, which ranked "pretty high" on Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli's agenda, finally became a reality, per the Boston Globe's Amalie Benjamin. 

ESPN Boston's Joe McDonald reported on October 4 that "there's a no-trade clause for the first 2 1/2 years, then it's a partial no-trade clause for the remainder of the contract." 

McDonald was able to get a hold of Seidenberg moments after the Bruins' 3-1 season-opening home victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning to get his take on the matter. 

Seidenberg said,"It makes me really happy, and on top of it we won the game." 

He also added the biggest consideration was Boston's status as a perennial contender in the next several years.

"I have a lot of fun playing here. The coaches have trust in me and that's the most important thing. I mean, if I go somehwere else for a lot of money and things don't work out that way, it's always -- I think the on-ice situation is the most important part. 

"We have a good team here and in the future I think we're going to be good for a lot of years." 

For his part, Chiarelli says Seidenberg is a great fit for the Bruins.

"He plays our style. Heavy game. Heavy game that we like. He's been a warrior for us. There's a lot of things he has that are compatible with the way we want to play. 

"He's 32, but we feel he's in very good condition, takes care of himself. Frankly, he wanted to stay here. Easier to get done for that reason."

Seidenberg has also seen action for the Florida Panthers, Carolina Hurricanes, Phoenix Coyotes and Philadelphia Flyers in 581 career NHL games, culminating in a Stanley Cup with the Bruins in 2011.  

On top of his 34 goals and 188 career points, he also has 242 penalty minutes and a plus-14 rating.

Boston Bruins Must Resist Moving Johnny Boychuk for Cap Flexibility

Oct 2 2014 7:31pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Johnny Boychuk has been a fixture in the NHL’s hyperactive rumour mill for a long time now. Even without parsing the myriad reports that a deal was possible or probable or pending, it’s obvious from the way he talks when he’s asked about the possibility. In comments to the Boston Herald’s Stephen Harris in September, Boychuk displayed a fine command of the cliches that a player subject to constant trade s ...

Complete Preview for the Boston Bruins' 2014-15 Season

Oct 2 2014 1:43am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The Boston Bruins have been consistently excellent the past four seasons; their point totals over that time (projecting 2013 for 82 games) are 103, 102, 106 and 117 last season. Only the Pittsburgh Penguins have more points over that time in the East. The Bruins have 40 postseason wins the past four years; only the Kings (43) have won more. Despite a crushing seven-game loss in the second round to the Montreal Canadiens and the loss of a 30-goal scorer in free agency, there's no ...

How Boston Bruins Defenseman Dougie Hamilton Can Make 2014-15 a Career Year

Sep 15 2014 9:40am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

In a way, third-year Boston Bruins blueliner Dougie Hamilton has yet to play a complete NHL season. A lockout delayed and shortened his rookie campaign, and he missed 18 of 82 regular-season contests in 2013-14. Although, what he has done over 125 total appearances, particularly the last 12 playoff outings, emits no shortage of promise. The 6’5”, 212-pound 21-year-old appears raring to elevate the all-around quantity and quality of his performance in 2014-15. Hamilton took of ...

Will Boston Bruins Goalie Tuukka Rask Repeat as Vezina Trophy Winner in 2014-15?

Sep 1 2014 5:12pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

No NHL goaltender has won back-to-back Vezina Trophies since Martin Brodeur in 2007-08. If that string is to stop at seven years in 2014-15, it will be on Boston Bruins backstop Tuukka Rask. Forecasters who see any measure of merit in recent history can make a confident case for Rask to repeat his title. Since 2008-09, Boston’s system has doubtlessly helped him and Tim Thomas claim a combined three of the last six Vezinas. In another o ...
