The Boston Bruins have gone through some big changes this offseason.

After a tough season, they said goodbye to a bunch of players who became free agents and are starting a new chapter.

One thing to watch is what will happen with Jake DeBrusk, a key forward.

DeBrusk is in the last year of his two-year, $8 million contract with the Bruins. He had a great season last year, scoring a career-best 27 goals and 50 points. This makes him likely to get a good contract offer.


But what's cool is that DeBrusk wants to stay in Boston. He's only ever played for the Bruins in the NHL, and he really likes the team.

In his own words, DeBrusk said, "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." He's hopeful about staying with the team he loves.

This is a good sign for the Bruins. DeBrusk's commitment matches what the team wants.

DeBrusk isn't playing games with his future. He's being clear about wanting to stick around in Boston, and the team's bosses probably like that.

It's important to remember that DeBrusk has had some tough times. He asked to be traded before the 2021 season, and everyone knew about it at the start of the 2021-22 season.

But in 2022, DeBrusk changed his mind about leaving. Since then, he's been a key player for the Bruins, scoring 43 goals and 75 points in 96 games. He's often on the top line with Bergeron and Marchand.

DeBrusk is really good at scoring goals. He's got the second-most goals on the Bruins since he moved to the top line. He's also one of the best in the NHL at scoring when both teams have the same number of players on the ice.

Plus, in the playoffs, DeBrusk has scored six goals and 10 points in the last 14 games.

Because DeBrusk is great at playing different positions as a forward and the Bruins have money to spend, it makes sense for him to get a new contract.

The Bruins have a lot of room to negotiate because they have a lot of cap space. What we'll have to wait and see is how eager the Bruins are to talk about a new contract. In the past, they've been quick to talk and make deals during the season.

What we can learn from this is that DeBrusk is ready to talk about a new contract, and that's a good sign for his future with the Bruins.
