The Boston Bruins are still engaged in contract negotiations with Loui Eriksson.

"I've been in discussions with Loui and I think I have a pretty good idea where they would like to be at, and we'll see if we can find common ground," said Bruins GM Don Sweeney. "But we have had ongoing discussion on that front. As I've said, I've always respected Loui as a player. He had a fabulous year and we would love to be able to retain him." Eriksson's first two seasons with Boston were rough, but he bounced back in 2015-16 with 30 goals and 63 points in 82 contests. He's eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Maxime Talbot is reportedly considering signing with a European club for the 2016-17 campaign.

Talbot is a veteran of 704 NHL games, but he spent a good chunk of the 2015-16 campaign in the minors. He'll be an unrestricted free agent this summer and might not see any one-way contract offers from NHL squads.

Boston Bruins coach Claude Julien and GM Don Sweeney both feel that Kevan Miller has some upside left.

The Boston Bruins inked Miller to a four-year, $10 million contract extension on Tuesday. He'll turn 29 in November, so we're very skeptical of the idea that he'll develop any further. In fact, we're more concerned about him regressing towards the end of this deal. On another level though, it is kind of nice to see him get this kind of contract, even if we're not convinced it was Boston's best movie. Miller was never drafted and took the long path to the NHL, only earning a permanent spot with the Bruins last season. He's someone that has been rewarded for his hard work and determination. "We’re talking about character players and he’s certainly one of those character players who in my mind could become a leader," Julien said.

Seth Griffith has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with the Boston Bruins.

Griffith will come with a $625K annual cap hit if he plays in the NHL. He spent the vast majority of the 2015-16 campaign in the minors, but he did have 24 goals and 77 points in 57 AHL contests.

Kevan Miller has agreed to a four-year, $10 million contract extension with the Boston Bruins.

That represents a big raise over Miller's previous contract, which paid him $1.6 million over two years. Miller had five goals, 13 assists, and 53 penalty minutes in 71 games last season. The 28-year-old blueliner has 159 NHL games under his belt.

Doug Jarvis will not return as an assistant coach of the Boston Bruins for the 2016-17 campaign.

Jay Pandolfo and Bruce Cassidy will be joining the Bruins' coaching staff though. Pandolfo logged 899 games in the NHL and has more recently been serving in a player development role within the Bruins' franchise. Cassidy is a veteran coach who spent the last five years as the bench boss for the AHL's Providence Bruins.

Dennis Seidenberg plans to enter the 2016-17 campaign with the Boston Bruins.

There are some rumors that Boston might have other plans, but Seidenberg has a full no-trade clause until December, so for now he has a lot of control over his fate. He was asked if he would waive his no-trade clause if asked, but he was noncommittal. "I haven’t thought about that . . . and right now I don’t want to think about it," he said. He had a goal and 12 points in 61 contests in 2015-16.

Frank Vatrano had three goals and eight points in 10 games at the 2016 Worlds.

The world championship offered Vatrano with a great opportunity to test himself further after an eventful season. He dominated in the AHL with 36 goals and 55 points in 36 AHL contests, but with the Boston Bruins he finished with eight goals and 11 points in 39 games. He'll be worth keeping an eye on during the Bruins' training camp.

Frank Vatrano scored a pair of goals in Team USA's 7-2 loss to Russia in the Bronze Medal Game at the World Hockey Championship.

Vatrano was the only American to beat Russia's Sergei Bobrovsky on Sunday morning. The Bruins forward cut Russia's lead to 4-1 and 5-2, but that's as close as USA would come to tying the game. The young American squad will have to settle for fourth place in 2016.

Brad Marchand will face off against Boston teammate Frank Vatrano Saturday night at the IIHF World Hockey Championships.

Marchand, who has five points in the tourney, skates for Canada, and Vatrano who has registered six points in the tourney represents the U.S. The two teams clash in the semifinals to determine which country will go to the gold medal game and face either Finland or the host team from Russia.

Joonas Kemppainen has agreed to a one-year deal with Sibir Novosibirsk of the KHL.

He spent most of the 2015-16 campaign with Boston, where he had five points in 44 games, but he was eventually sent to the minors and he finished the year with Providence. In the AHL, he had five points in 11 games.
May 14 - 5:06 PM

Frank Vatrano has been one of the Americans' better players at the IIHF World Hockey Championships.

The 22-year-old winger has registered four points in five games and seems to be fitting in with his more experienced U.S. teammates. Keep an eye on Vatrano in training camp to see if he will play a prominent role with the Bruins next season.

David Pastrnak's fantasy value may be increasing as a result of his fine play at the IIHF World Hockey Championships.

He is leading the undefeated Czech Republic in scoring with six points in five games and has been one of the more exciting players in the tourney. Pastrnak will almost certainly play in the Bruins' top six next season and is worth a late-round selection in hockey drafts irrespective of format.
