Brad Marchand has inked an eight-year, $49 million contract extension with the Boston Bruins.
In other words, Marchand's annual cap hit will increase from $4.5 million to $6.125 million starting with the 2017-18 campaign. That's still a pretty affordable cap hit for a player coming off a 37-goal season though the length of the deal is likely part of what kept that cap hit down as he's already 28 years old and will be 37 before he has a chance to enter the free agent market now. Going forward, we're not confident that he'll surpass the 30-goal mark again, but he should at least come close to doing so while still getting under opponents' skin. Sep 26 - 11:34 AM

Brad Marchand isn't focused on who he will be playing for after the 2016-17.

Marchand has made instant chemistry with Sidney Crosby on Canada's top line, which naturally leads to questions about whether the 2017 unrestricted free agent would like to sign in Pittsburgh. But we'll deal with whatever needs to be dealt with down the road," Marchand said. The 28-year-old winger boasts a $4.5M cap hit currently, and he'll likely want a raise no matter who he signs with.

Team Canada's Brad Marchand scored two goals in their 5-3 win over Team Russia at the World Cup of Hockey semifinal.

Canada overpowered Russia with 47 shots on goal to 34, but prior to the third period Canada had an almost two to one margin in shots. Marchand had what appeared to be the game winning goal with a dramatic score at the 1:16 minute mark of the second period. Russia’s goalie Sergei Bobrovsky made a sliding glove save over Marchand less than a minute into this period, but the Boston Bruin shooter would not be denied and scored less than 25 seconds later. That was the go ahead and game winning goal until the final seconds of play. With an empty net Marchand and Canada got greedy trying to give him the hat trick. They lost focus on the other end of the ice and allowed Russia’s Artemi Panarin to score with nine seconds remaining. Corey Perry earned the game winning goal with Sidney Crosby and John Tavares also getting a piece of the action with one goal apiece. Canada will meet the winner of Sunday’s Europe versus Sweden contest in a best-of-three finale.

Marchand picked up a primary assist on Sidney Crosby's goal, he scored one of his own less than nine minutes later and he picked up the only helper on Patrice Bergeron's buzzer beater with one second left in the frame. Canada's next game will come against the USA (0-1) on Tuesday.

The Boston Bruins want to sign Brad Marchand to an extension before the start of the regular season.

"We’d like to get Brad signed. We’ve made that clear to him, and we’ve made that clear to his agency. I know Don has been working with their group to a get a deal done," said Bruins President Cam Neely. "We’d like to get something done before the start of the season." Marchand is entering the final year of his contract after scoring 37 goals and 61 points in 77 games last season. He'll likely end up with a multi-year deal at around $7 million per season.

Brad Marchand wants to spend his whole career with the Boston Bruins.

Marchand is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2016-17 season, but the Bruins will hope to lock up him to a long-term deal before that happens. It sounds like Marchand also wants to stick around for the long haul. "It would be great to be here my whole career, and you see how rare that is nowadays," Marchand said. "It doesn’t happen often, so that would be incredible. But a lot of things have to line up in order for that to happen not only now, but down the road. So, we’ll play it year-by-year. I’m really excited about the upcoming season and what is ahead." The 28-year-old scored 37 goals and 61 points in 77 games last year. He should be in line for a mega contract.

The Boston Bruins have begun their contract negotiations with Brad Marchand.

Marchand still has one season left on his four-year, $18 million deal, so re-signing him isn't urgent, but the Bruins want him to play a big role in their long-term plans. "I think I’ve been pretty upfront with the fact that we’ve identified [Marchand] as a core guy, and we want to continue down that path. It always takes two sides to make a deal, and I would envision that he’d like to be a part of this organization for what could arguably be his whole career," Bruins GM Don Sweeney said. "Brad has a say in this as well, but as far as talking contracts that’s about as far as I’ll go in that regard." Marchand is coming off a big season for him where he scored 37 goals and 60 points in 77 contests.

CSN New England's Joe Haggerty believes Brad Marchand's next cap hit will be roughly $6 million annually.

In addition to signing free agents Loui Eriksson and Torey Krug, Boston GM Don Sweeney will be working hard to try and negotiate a contract extension with Brad Marchand.

Marchand had a breakout season with 37 goals and 61 points in 77 games in 2015-16 and the Bruins would like to tie him up at a reasonable price for the next five seasons or so as he is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2016-17 campaign. The club can't officially sign an extension with the pesky winger until July 1st, so stay tuned.

Brad Marchand is thrilled about being selected to play for Team Canada at the World Cup of Hockey.

"It’s an incredible honor to play for Team Canada. It’s something that I think we all take a lot of pride in, and something that is…it’s not an easy accomplishment," said Marchand. "It’s not something you get to do very often, and to have that opportunity twice this year is very special and it’s not something I take for granted." Some questioned whether he should be on the team ahead of players like Corey Perry and Taylor Hall, but there's no doubt that Marchand had a terrific season. The 28-year-old had 37 goals and 61 points in 77 games during the '15-16 season.
