Breaking news — Savard signs extenstion

Sources are confirming that Marc Savard has signed a 7-year extension that would keep the center-man in Boston through the ’16/’17 season.

The deal is worth a reported $29 million with an annual cap hit of $4.2 mil/year.

The Bruins struggled out of the gate this season while Savard was on the shelf with a broken foot. Since he has returned, the Bruins have vaulted from 11th in the Eastern Conference to as high as third. Clearly, the Bruins need Savard and Boston’s poor early-season play was great leverage when the two sides sat down to discuss this extension.

Top notch move by the Bruins here. I’m glad to see them spending the type of money (on the right players) that should keep the Bruins in championship contention for the foreseeable future.
