Top 50 Free Agents: Tyler Bertuzzi and Dmitry Orlov Set To Get A Big Pay Day

Published May 26, 2023 at 6:46 PM

After an impressive run with the Boston Bruins, particularly in the playoffs, Tyler Bertuzzi is set to become a free agent this summer.

The Bruins will have to pay a significant amount to retain him, but their financial flexibility is limited. Despite playing just 21 regular season games, Bertuzzi quickly won over fans with his toughness and offensive contributions, tallying 16 points and 12 assists.

He continued his stellar performance in the postseason, scoring 10 points in 7 games. As a result, he is now projected to secure one of the most lucrative contracts among the top 50 free agents.

According to insiders, Bertuzzi could potentially sign a six-year deal worth $5.25 million annually. The Bruins will need to carefully consider their signings this summer and may rely on players like Bertuzzi and Orlov to take team-friendly contracts for long-term management benefits. Right under Bertuzzi is teammate Dmitry Orlov, who is also set to collect a big pay day, as Frank Seravali suggests that Orlov could be looking at getting a five-year deal around $6.25m.

While the Bruins could let Bertuzzi, and Orlov walk, it may be a mistake given their impressive start and potential for a full season with the team.
