The agent for Bruins restricted free agent Brad Marchand recently told CSNNE‘s Joe Haggerty that the two sides are not close to a deal to keep the folk hero in Boston.
“Discussions with the Bruins remain open and ongoing regarding Brad, but nothing is imminent,” agent Wade Arnott told Haggerty.
When asked whether a deal would be done before training camp opens on Sept. 16, Arnott replied, “[I’m] hopeful, but it’s no sure thing.”
Last season, Marchand had 21 goals and 20 assists for 41 points. He added 19 more points in the playoffs, including two goals in Game 7 of the Stanley Cup finals.
