The agent for Bruins restricted free agent Brad Marchand [1] recently told CSNNE [2]‘s Joe Haggerty that the two sides are not close to a deal to keep the folk hero in Boston.

‘€œDiscussions 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, ‘€œ[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 [3] finals.
