GM: Bruins nearing a deal to re-sign goalie Tuukka Rask
Rask deal near
Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli said he is confident the team will re-sign goalie Tuukka Rask.
Chiarelli told reporters on a conference call yesterday that he thinks it will happen by tomorrow, when Rask can become a restricted free agent. Even if they don’t meet the deadline, the GM said he still feels like he can get a deal done.
Rask, 26, had a 2.00 GAA this season while leading the Bruins to the Stanley Cup finals.
Chiarelli also said he would consider re-signing forward Jaromir Jagr. The team had decided to part ways with the future Hall of Famer, whom they acquired at the trade deadline. But after Nathan Horton said he wanted to test the market, that left Boston looking for forwards.
