The Bruins are nearly done dealing this offseason after signing Jake DeBrusk to a two-year, $7.35 million deal with a $3.675 million cap hit, the team announced Monay. Boston's selections during that fateful 2015 NHL Draft continues to draw the ire of fans to this day, but DeBrusk actually ranks 11th in that stacked draft class in total goals since the start of the 2015-16 campaign.
DeBrusk, who turned 24 last month, was on pace for his second 20-goal season in his three-year career when the National Hockey League paused on March 12. DeBrusk also scored just once in his final 14 contests, but he played at a 36-goal pace in his 39 games from November 2 to February 8.
Considered Boston's third-best wing behind Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak, DeBrusk recorded a career-high in 27 goals in 2018-19, but is still looking to work out some obvious consistency issues, as noted in year-end availability.
Selected by Boston in the first round (No. 14) of the 2015 NHL Draft, DeBrusk has scored 120 points (62 goals, 58 assists) in 203 regular-season games and 23 points (14 goals, nine assists) in 49 playoff games.
DeBrusk's new deal gives the Bruins just under $3 million in projected available cap space.
