Upcoming Bruins free agents

In the coming months the Bruins will have to deal with their restricted free agents and unrestricted free agents. Below is a list of those upcoming free agents. The Bruins will also have to deal with the upcoming expansion draft, with the Vegas Golden Knights joining the NHL as the 31st team, where the Bruins can only protect eleven players (first and second year pros and unsigned draft picks are exempt and don't count towards the eleven players). The Bruins will definitely lose one player during the expansion draft but it could be more.

Restricted Free Agents
The Bruins players that will be restricted free agents are: forwards David Pastrnak, Noel Acciari, Tim Schaller, Ryan Spooner, and defenseman Joe Morrow.

Unrestricted Free Agents
The Bruins players that will be unrestricted free agents are: forwards Dominic Moore, Drew Stafford, and defenseman John-Michael Liles.
