Bruins Boychuk takes “hometown discount”

The Boston Bruins have reportedly signed 26 year-old defensman Johnny Boychuk to a two year deal in the 3.5 to 3.75 million dollar range and is being considered a “hometown discount” for what this young kid is worth. The contract also is reported to not have a no trade clause.

Boychuk was drafted in the 2002 NHL Entry draft in the second round (61st overall) and began his career with the Colorado Avalanche playing the majority of the time with their AHL affiliate and only appearing in four games with the Avs before being traded to Boston in 2008 for Matt Hendricks.

His start with the Bruins organization also began at the AHL level with only one call up. This past season he played 51 games with the Bruins recording 5 goals and 10 assists in the regular season. Come playoffs he averaged a little over 26 minutes per game, contributed two goals and 4 assists and a plus(-) rating of six.
