Breaking News: Boston Bruins Finally Inks a Blockbuster Deal to Land Another Great Goalie in a Two-Way Contract…

 Bruins Sign Young Goalie to One-Year, Two-Way Contract Extension

The Boston Bruins shared news on Monday night about their goaltending lineup. They have extended Brandon Bussi’s contract for one year on a two-way deal, with a cap hit of $775,000. During the 2023-24 season, Bussi played 41 games for the Providence Bruins, achieving a record of 23-10-5, a 2.67 goals-against average, and a .913 save percentage.

The 25-year-old was called up in January when Linus Ullmark suffered an upper-body injury. Bussi served as a backup to Jeremy Swayman against the Vegas Golden Knights but did not play in any NHL games.

Head coach Jim Montgomery praised Bussi’s competitiveness, athleticism, and positive attitude before his call-up, noting that Bussi carries himself in an upbeat manner.

The Bruins’ goaltending situation has been a hot topic since their elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs in May. With Ullmark in the final year of his contract expressing a desire to stay, General Manager Don Sweeney is considering all options for what he predicts will be an “aggressive” offseason.

With nearly $21 million in cap space, the Bruins are in a strong position to enhance their roster. They aim to secure a long-term deal with Jeremy Swayman, which both parties are optimistic about, and they are also looking to add a top-tier center.
