Foxborough, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Forward Teal Bunbury has signed a multi- year contract extension with the New England Revolution, the club announced on Wednesday.
Per club and league policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.
"We're excited to bring Teal back this season," Revolution general manager Michael Burns said. "Teal is a talented, young player who's brought a dynamic element to our system, and we're expecting him to continue being a key contributor on the field."
Bunbury led the Revs with a career-best six assists, doubling his previous career-high, in 31 regular-season games while adding four goals in his first season with the Revolution.
He scored his first-ever goal for the club in a 2-0 home win over his former club, Sporting Kansas City, on April 26, scoring the game-winning goal in second-half stoppage time. He added another goal in a home win over Sporting in early September, while also tallying in wins over Seattle and Toronto FC.
"I am thankful to be able to remain with the Revs and help this club continue to build on what we accomplished last season," Bunbury said. "We have a close knit team that is capable of winning a championship and I look forward to being a part of that."
Bunbury scored two goals, added a pair of assists and started all five of New England's postseason matches as the club reached MLS Cup final for the first time since 2007, ultimately losing to the Los Angeles Galaxy, 2-1, in extra time.
