Tyler Seguin six-year extension

The Boston Bruins taking on the Montreal Canadians.

All-star player, Tyler Seguin, was just signed to a six-year contract extension on Tuesdays, worth an average of $5.75 million a year. Seguin totaled 67 points in 2011-2012 calendar season, which was just his second year playing for the Bruins, and became the youngest player to receive the teams scoring title.

This deals seems to be pretty even for both sides, Seguin expressed his comfort with the Bruins organization and was hoping to stay with them for many years to come. While the Bruins new they needed to sign some of the “younger” players first so they could form the rest of the team around them for many years.

The Brampton, Ontario native knows that with great power comes great responsibility, and is looking forward to stepping up to the expectations put before him as well as the leadership roles that he will be put into in the coming weeks.

However, Seguin was not the only relatively new Bruin player to get a contract extension in the past two weeks. Brad Marchand, who started his NHL career just a year before Seguin, was signed to an extension; however his was only four years and worth $18 million.

Sydney Crosby reports no health issues.

In this article published on NHL’s website.

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=641208

In it they talk about how Sydney Crosby reports that he is currently not being held back by any health issues. Also that he started his “on the ice” practice much earlier in the year so that he can make up for all of his lost time in the last two seasons. Especially last season where he played roughly 20 games. It will be good to see him back on the ice.

Thanks.
