Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk has reiterated his desire to renew his contract with the Bruins.

While it remains uncertain if the Bruins reciprocate this sentiment, as reflected in the fluctuating NHL betting odds, DeBrusk's stance hasn't changed.
In a recent exclusive interview with Boston Hockey Now, the 27-year-old wing player, who is eligible for unrestricted free agency on July 1, expressed his eagerness to continue playing for the Spoked B beyond the current season. He also emphasized his ambition to assist the century-old, Original 6 team in securing their seventh Stanley Cup victory.
"Yeah, of course," Debrusk added quick. "That's what I've been consistent with since – I think the first time I was asked was in the summer – but yeah. This is all I know, and I grew up here and have obviously evolved and grown in different ways. It's one of those things where I want to win here. We were one game away in '19, and I want to win a Cup here in Boston. So that's my complete focus."

DeBrusk highlighted that this isn't his initial expression of wanting to stay with the team that selected him as the 14th overall pick in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
"I'm hoping to stay (with the Boston Bruins). It's the only team that I know and the team that I grew up with," DeBrusk told NHL.com last August. "Hopefully, it goes in that direction, and we'll see how it goes."

DeBrusk, currently boasting 12 goals and 13 assists in 46 games, and recently having his three-game goal streak ended in the Bruins' 3-2 defeat to the Carolina Hurricanes, consistently demonstrates his commitment to staying with the Bruins, both on and off the ice. With seven goals and seven assists in the last 15 games, he has evolved into a versatile asset for Bruins head coach Jim Montgomery. Montgomery recently praised DeBrusk's recent performances as the 'best version' of him that he has witnessed since taking over as the Bruins' head coach before the previous season.
