Bruins sign Seguin to 6-year extension

Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli has announced today that the Bruins have signed forward Tyler Seguin to a 6-year contract extension, worth an average of $5.75 million annually over the contract.

The 2011-12 season marked Seguin’s second NHL season with the Bruins. The 6’1”, 182-pound native of Brampton, Ontario registered NHL career highs in goals, assists and points, recording 29-38=67 totals, along with 30 penalty minutes. His 29 goals and 67 points both ranked highest on the Bruins roster, making him the youngest player in team history to hold the club’s scoring title. Seven of Seguin’s goals were game-winners, and his plus-34 rating ranked second in the league behind teammate Patrice Bergeron. He was also selected to play in the 2012 NHL All-Star Game, after having previously competed in the NHL All-Star SuperSkills Competition in 2011.
