Could Bruins Sign David Pastrnak To Bridge Deal Like Blackhawks’ Panarin?
The Bruins could find themselves in a similar situation with their own dynamic young star, David Pastrnak. At just 20 years old, Pastrnak is enjoying a breakout season as he is tied for second in the league with 19 goals – all while missing seven of the Bruins’ 37 games. Like Panarin, he’s also set to become a restricted free agent after the season.
While losing Pastrnak to restricted free agency is not really a concern, as that is an incredibly rare occurrence, the winger is setting himself up for a serious payday in Boston.
