Zdeno Chara signs 7-year, $6.5mil extension
The Bruins have locked up their second star player in 24 hours, announcing this morning that captain Zdeno Chara has signed a 7-year, $41 million deal. The deal will take Chara through the 2017-2018 season, when he'll be 41.
Interesting note -- with the extensions, Bergeron and Chara will carry a combined cap hit of $11.5mil. Their current deals combine for $12.25mil, so the Bruins are saving money on the extensions.
