Like forward Nick Suzuki, who signed an eight-year, $ 63 million contract extension with the Montreal Canadians on Tuesday, defenseman Charlie McAvoy could hit big with the Boston Bruins.
Like Suzuki, being able to become a free agent with compensation at the end of this season will be on the verge of a deal with the Macaulay Bruins.
“We hope to resolve the Charlie McAvoy case soon,” Bruins president Cam Neely was quoted as saying Wednesday on the National Hockey League’s website that he was in talks with general manager Dan Sweeney and his assistant Evan Gold McAvoy. Clan these days. I hope something happens soon, but you never know until the signing agreement is at the bottom. “
The 23-year-old McAvoy is in the final year of a three-year contract averaging $ 4.9 million per season. The Bruins defenseman is likely to benefit from a substantial salary increase.
In the NHL Defense, Edmonton Oilers’ Dornell Nurse signed an eight-year contract on August 6 for $ 74 million. Last week, young Jack Varen received $ 57.5 million from Columbus Blue Jackets for a six-year term.
