NHL: Jake DeBrusk finally wants to stay in Boston


Forward Jake DeBrusk reportedly told the Boston Bruins he no longer wanted to pack his bags, about eight months after asking to be traded.

According to the TSN network, the agent for the Alberta winger, Rick Valette, would have met with general manager Don Sweeney to inform him of his client's desire to remain in the capital of Massachusetts.

At the month March, DeBrusk signed a two-year deal worth $4 million a year. Several observers had suggested that this contract would only serve to facilitate a possible transaction.

Although no causal link has been established between the dismissal of head coach Bruce Cassidy and the decision of DeBrusk, we can guess that the arrival of a new driver in Boston had an impact on his desire to stay in Boston.

Recall that the Bruins recently announced that Montrealer Jim Montgomery would take the reins of the team next season.

Former first-round pick, 14th overall, in the 2015 draft, DeBrusk has played his entire career with the “Oursons”. He scored 25 goals and had 42 points in 77 games in 2021-22.
