Bruins sign Scorey Krug to 4-year, $5.25mil/yr extension

Buy the tshirt from Sully's Brand!

The Bruins just announced they signed Torey Krug to a 4-year, $5.25mil/yr extension:

I’m vehemently anti-smurf, but the Bruins took a chance on an undrafted, smurfy defenseman and ended up catching lightning in a bottle. You can say his minutes are sheltered or you can say he’s been effectively deployed. Whichever it is, he’s clearly part of the solution.

I’m a believer and I’m looking forward to at least four more years of goals, goals, goals!

Oh, and you can buy the Goals Goals Goals tshirt from Sully’s Brand here.
