Bruins confirm Savard 7-year deal

The Bruins issued a press release this evening formally announcing a seven-year contract extension for center Marc Savard [1]. The team will hold a press conference tomorrow at 11:15 with GM Peter Chiarelli, coach Claude Julien [2] and Savard to discuss the deal. Savard had told WEEI.com Monday that the contract extension was close to completion. “Hopefully we’€™re going to get it done because this is where I want to be,” said Savard at that time. The 32-year-old has led the team in scoring for each of the past three seasons.
