A source has told WEEI.com that the Bruins and restricted free agent Mark Stuart are “very close” to reaching a one-year deal. Stuart recently chose against filing for arbitration, as he felt comfortable enough that he would be able to come to agreement with the Bruins.
In 56 games this past season, the defenseman had two goals, five assists and racked up 80 penalty minutes. He set a career high in points in the 2008-2009 season with 17.
