The NHL shutdown isn’t stopping the Boston Bruins from taking care of business.
On Friday, the Bruins signed goaltender Jaroslav Halak to a one-year contract extension worth $2.25 million.
Halak will be 35 years old in a couple of weeks and that’s a great way to celebrate. He played in 31 games with Boston this season, putting up a 18-6-6 record with three shutouts, a 2.39 goals against average and .919 save percentage.
In his NHL career, Halak has taken part in 520 regular season games, compiling a 272-167-58 record with a 2.48 GAA and a.916 save percentage to go along with 50 shutouts.
While Halak has moved around quite a bit throughout his career as he was selected in the ninth round of the 2003 NHL Draft, playing for the Montreal Canadiens, St. Louis Blues, Washington Capital andNew York Islanders.
The Bruins are happy to see he can remain in Boston some more.
