Jake DeBrusk made positive strides in his rookie season and he'll be looking to improve in 2018-19.

"I feel like you can always get better in certain areas. I think that my main focus this year is going to be my speed. I think that I can get faster and stronger, just stronger on the pucks," said DeBrusk. "I think that throughout the second half I was finding that, but at the same time, I know I can work on getting stronger in those areas, and just my overall game." He collected 16 goals and 43 points in 70 games during the regular season. DeBrusk added six goals and eight points in 12 contests in the playoffs.

Riley Nash would like to re-sign with the Boston Bruins.

"I’ve been around for a while, so winning is going to be one of my top priorities," said Nash. "If they see a fit here, then I’ve truly enjoyed my two years here, it’s been awesome and I’d love to come back. I think they have one of the best teams coming up with the young players and the veteran leaders, so this has been a good fit for the last two years. We’ll see if we can figure something out." That being said, Nash might not fit into the Bruins' cap. He came with a $900K cap hit in 2017-18, but he's due for a big raise after scoring 15 goals and 41 points in 76 games this season.

The groin injury Patrice Bergeron was dealing this season might lead to surgery.

Bergeron wants to see if rest will correct the problem first, but if need be he'll have an operation over the summer. "It’s a little groin issue that will go away on its own hopefully," Bergeron said. "It was in one of the last practices in camp that I pulled my groin, and then it was an issue after that for a long time. It went away [for a while] and then it came back in the playoffs. Hopefully, it’s rest and rehab, but it might be surgery if it doesn’t go away." He finished the campaign with 30 goals and 63 points in 64 contests.

Rick Nash is willing to re-sign with the Boston Bruins this offseason.

Nash was acquired from the Rangers before the trade deadline, but he didn’t produce as much as the Bruins would have hoped. "It was disappointing with having the concussion and having some effects during it and only playing a certain amount of games and then coming back for the playoffs," Nash said Wednesday. "But everything was positive. The organization was great, the guys were awesome, so it was a great chapter here and hopefully it can continue." Even though he’s open to returning, it would be surprising to see the Bruins bring him back. Expect him to hit the free agent market on July 1st.
