BREAKING - Jake DeBrusk may get a similar contract to Brad Marchand

As Jake DeBrusk embarks on the twilight of his contract, his recent displays on the ice signal an impending handsome reward.

Drawing parallels with Brad Marchand's contract, the potential magnitude of DeBrusk's forthcoming agreement looms large. A precedent was set by Marchand's eight-year pact, carrying an impressive average annual value (AAV) of $6.125 million.

Delving into Marchand's foundational years (2009-2016), his statistics stood tall: 153 goals, 136 assists, and 289 points across 454 games.

Meanwhile, DeBrusk, having graced the ice since 2017, boasts 119 goals, 107 assists, and 226 points over 385 games.

The striking similarity lies in the fact that DeBrusk's pre-unrestricted free agent (UFA) season is yet to unfold, and his figures closely mirror those of Marchand when he penned his contract in 2016.

As the season progresses, all eyes are affixed to DeBrusk's performance during this contract year, further intensifying the intrigue surrounding the potential negotiations that await.
