Bruins forward may be heading out West on July 1st

The Boston Bruins will have their work cut out for them if they want to retain one of their key trade deadline acquisitions, Tyler Bertuzzi. As Sportsnet's Jeff Marek reports, the Dallas Stars are keen on pursuing the gritty forward during free agency, potentially leaving the Bruins short-handed in their quest for their first Stanley Cup in 12 years.

Tyler Bertuzzi has shown promise during his time with the Bruins, playing a valuable middle-six role even with his relatively modest production. His experience and physicality have made him a valuable asset on the ice, and it's no surprise that other teams like the Stars have taken notice.

As Boston's top team, the Bruins will want to keep their roster as strong as possible, and losing Bertuzzi to the Stars in free agency would be a blow. However, it's also important for them to evaluate their options and prioritize signings based on the team's overall needs and cap constraints.

If the Bruins are determined to keep Bertuzzi, they'll have to work out a deal that makes sense for both parties before he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. Given his contributions so far, it's clear that Bertuzzi has the potential to play a significant role in the Bruins' pursuit of the Stanley Cup.
