Jake DeBrusk's Future with the Bruins: GM Opens Door to Potential Trade

Published September 21, 2023 at 10:19 PM
Jake DeBrusk's tenure with the Boston Bruins has had its share of ups and downs. A trade request a few years ago raised doubts about his future, but he ultimately signed an extension in March 2021.

Now, as his contract's expiration looms, DeBrusk is on the verge of unrestricted free agency at the end of the 2023-24 NHL season. Interestingly, both sides seem eager to continue their partnership. General Manager Don Sweeney and the Bruins' management intend to engage in discussions with DeBrusk and his representatives to gauge his desire to stay in Boston and explore the possibility of a new deal.

However, there's a twist. If DeBrusk falls short of expectations, his future with the Bruins could take a different turn. The trade deadline stands as a potential juncture where the team might leverage his assets to acquire key additions, bolstering their playoff run and pursuit of the coveted Stanley Cup.

DeBrusk's recent standout season played a vital role in the team's record-breaking regular season, earning him praise from Sweeney for his performance and resilience in the face of injuries.

As the 2023-24 NHL season kicks off with a home game against the Chicago Blackhawks on October 11, DeBrusk and the Bruins are poised for fresh opportunities and renewed hopes.
