Bruins ink Marchand to contract extension

The Boston Bruins signed forward Brad Marchand year contract extension on Wednesday.

Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed. According to TSN of Canada, Marchand's deal is worth $5 million.

The 23-year-old finished his first full NHL season with 21 goals and 41 points in 77 regular-season games.

He was a primary factor in the club's first Stanley Cup win since 1972, tallying 11 goals -- including two in the Bruins' 4-0 title-clinching Game 7 victory in Vancouver -- and 19 points over 25 playoff tilts.

In 97 games over the last two years with Boston, the Nova Scotia native has compiled 42 points and 71 penalty minutes.
