Boston, MA, United States (4E Sports) - The Boston Bruins have signed left wing Brad Marchand to an eight-year, $49 million contract extension, the team announced.
According to the Bruins, the contract is worth an average annual value of $6.125 million and runs through the 2024-25 season.
"Boston has become my second home," Marchand said. "I absolutely love it there. I'm very excited about what's ahead for our team. I really believe in our team and our group and what we're working towards."
"It's a place that I'm very excited about being for the next number of years and potentially my whole career," he added.
Marchand , who set a career high with 37 goals last season, could have been an unrestricted free agent after this season, but instead has committed to playing for the Bruins for the foreseeable future.
Marchand also made his mark on a bigger stage for Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey 2016, scoring five points in four games and is tied for the tournament lead with three goals.
Team Canada will play in the best-of-3 World Cup final against Team Europe starting Tuesday.
