BOSTON - Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, February 14, that the team has signed defenseman Jeremy Lauzonto a two-year contract extension through the 2021-22 season with an annual NHL cap hit of $850,000.
Does the signing of that deal make him more tradeable or is that an indication that they like him a lot or is there a short term cap component to it? Sometimes modern sports management makes following the game annoying... lol
$850K is effectively a minimum salary to avoid arbitration next year. He gets a guaranteed $1.7M while the Bruins lock him at a low depth D rate. If he were to secure a regular spot in the line up next year he could easily end up at a much higher rate through arbitration. The 2 year contract does mean that if he will be under contract during the Seattle expansion draft.
