Patrice Bergeron has captured his fourth Frank J. Selke Trophy as the league's top defensive forward.

Bergeron has tied Bob Gainey, who presented the award to him, for the most in NHL history. He has won the award four times in the last six years. Bergeron contributes points, faceoff wins and plays in all situations for the Boston Bruins against the best players on the opposition.

Malcolm Subban is an option for the Golden Knights in the expansion draft.

It's not surprising that the Bruins exposed him given that they could only protect one goaltender and that was obviously going to be Tuukka Rask. Subban hasn't developed into the goaltender that the Bruins were hoping for when they took him with the 24th overall pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, but he's still just 23-years-old, so it's too early to write him off. The Golden Knights have plenty of good goaltenders to choose from, but it would be interesting if they took Subban in the hopes that he'll still eventually develop into a starter.

As expected, the Bruins left Colin Miller and Adam McQuaid unprotected for Tuesday's expansion draft.

The Bruins protected forwards David Backes, Patrice Bergeron, David Krejci, Brad Marchand, Riley Nash, David Pastrnak and Ryan Spooner and defensemen Zdeno Chara, Torey Krug and Kevan Miller. They also obviously protected goalie Tuukka Rask. Look for the Vegas Golden Knights to focus in on Miller and McQuaid Tuesday night.

Tommy Cross has agreed to a one-year, two-way contract with Boston.

Cross will be able to earn $650,000 if he plays at the NHL level. He notched 12 goals and 35 points in 74 games with Providence of the AHL in 2016-17. Cross skated in one playoff with Boston and he appeared in three regular season contests with the big club in 2015-16.

Boston has promoted Kevin Dean from AHL Providence to the big club.

Dean served as an assistant on Bruce Cassidy's staff in Providence for five seasons and now they have been reunited in the NHL. He was in charge of the team's defense, so he has already worked with Torey Krug, Brandon Carlo, Kevan Miller, Colin Miller, and Joe Morrow before.

Zac Rinaldo will reportedly be an unrestricted free agent in July.

Andy Strickland of Fox Sports Midwest reports that the Boston Bruins won't give Rinaldo a qualifying offer. Rinaldo spent all of his time in the AHL during the 2016-17 campaign, but he played in just 29 games. He played in 52 games with Boston in 2015-16 and he amassed 83 penalty minutes.

Bruins legend Bobby Orr believes his former team isn't that far away from being Stanley Cup contenders again.

"If you look around the league, there's not a big difference," Orr said. "Just take a peak. Everybody can't have (Sidney) Crosby and (Evgeni) Malkin on the same team. But you look around, the teams are close. So, the Bruins aren't that far away." Boston made it back in the playoffs in 2017, but they were eliminated in the first round by Ottawa. Still, the team some good young talent coming through their system and solid veterans who are capable of moving the team forward if the right pieces come into the lineup to supplement them.

Zdeno Chara was not asked to waive his no-movement clause ahead of Monday's deadline for the expansion draft.

David Krejci, Patrice Bergeron, Brad Marchand and David Backes also have no-move clauses on the Bruins and they were not asked to waive either. None of this is surprising except maybe for Chara. The 40-year-old defenseman has one more season on his contract and Boston likes his veteran presence on the back end, but it's doubtful that he would have interested the Golden Knights.

Don't be surprised if the Bruins trade for a defenseman this off-season.

Boston is in dire need of a left-handed rearguard who can play top-four minutes as Torey Krug is a little exposed in that role in five-on-five situations. Most expect the Wild to move Jonas Brodin or Matthew Dumba, while Sami Vatanen and Tyson Barrie may also be available via trade. Stay tuned.

Bruins general manager Don Sweeney is open to trading his team's first-round pick in 2017.

"It’s an effort to try and improve our hockey club," said Sweeney. "We have had a number of selections the last couple of years and we feel that they’ll all materialize into very good players for the Boston Bruins and I wouldn’t be doing my job if I didn’t explore what could improve our hockey club now in the shorter term. I owe it to our players and the organization to continue to do that. Whether or not it happens, I don’t know." The Bruins have had plenty of draft picks during Sweeney's tenure, but with gaping holes on their roster, it's no surprise that they're willing to deal their top pick. Many respected hockey minds have suggested that the 2017 draft has one of the weaker crops in recent years. Boston currently owns the 18th overall pick.
Jun 2 - 9:51 PM

Boston Bruins GM Don Sweeney feels the contract talks with David Pastrnak have been moving in the right direction.

Pastrnak is eligible to become a restricted free agent this summer after breaking out in 2016-17 with 34 goals and 70 points in 75 games. That might be enough to earn him a very lucrative long-term deal, though he was far less offensively productive in his first two NHL campaigns so the two sides might ultimately end up with a bridge deal to get a better idea of what he'll be capable of in the long run.
Jun 2 - 6:31 PM

Linus Arnesson will be playing in Sweden in 2017-18.

Arnesson had an assist in 20 games with the AHL's Providence Bruins in 2016-17. Boston will extend a qualifying offer to the 22-year-old defenseman in order to retain his NHL rights in case he decides to return to North America at some point.
Jun 2 - 4:53 PM

The Boston Bruins will start their 2017 preseason with a game against the Montreal Canadiens in Quebec City.

That game will take place on Sept. 18 and it marks the second straight year that the Bruins have played a preseason contest in Quebec City. In total, the Bruins have seven exhibition games scheduled for their 2017 preseason.
Jun 2 - 9:50 AM

Anders Bjork has agreed to a three-year entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins.

He generated 21 goals and 31 assists in 39 games for the University of Notre Dame in 2016-17. Bjork followed that up by representing Team USA at the World Hockey Championship, where he didn't have a point in five games. The fifth-round pick (146th overall) of the Bruins in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft will turn pro next season and it's believed that he can contribute. Bjork will try to claim a roster spot with Boston at training camp.
May 30 - 5:13 PM

Colby Cave may have an outside shot at a roster spot with Boston next season.

He could be viewed as a dark-horse contender at this time because he has played well for Providence during the team's playoff run, which ended in the third round. Cave could be a candidate for the fourth line at the NHL level.
