Boston Bruins' forward Trent Frederic has inked a new contract ahead of his scheduled arbitration hearing on August 1st.

The promising restricted free agent and the Bruins' management have reached a satisfying two-year, $4.6 million extension, solidifying Frederic's presence on the team.

Reflecting on the process, Frederic commented,

"These contract talks felt quite distinct from my earlier entry-level agreement. The arbitration component granted more leeway for RFAs. I'm genuinely pleased with the terms we've settled upon. The fact that we sorted this out before the hearing brings contentment to both sides."



Addressing his evolving role, Frederic discussed the prospect of stepping into a leadership position following Patrice Bergeron's retirement. He said,

"I'm dedicated to personal growth, excelling as both an individual and a hockey player. I aspire to epitomize the Boston Bruins' values. While replacing players like Bergy and others who departed this summer poses a challenge, I'm optimistic about the talent within our team."

With a focus on building upon his 2022-23 achievements, where he achieved career-highs with 17 goals and 14 assists while averaging around 12 minutes on the ice per game, Frederic is resolute in his pursuit of ongoing success.
