Fans can expect to see Reilly Smith wearing the Spoked-B for another two years.
Smith, set to become a restricted free agent this summer,
signed a two year contract extension with the Bruins on Mar. 6 for an annual cap
worth of 3.425 million dollars. Smith will receive 3.35 million in the first
year, and receive 3.5 million in the second.
Smith came to Boston in a 7 player deal that saw Tyler
Seguin, Rich Peverley, and Ryan Button go to Dallas, while the Bruins acquired
Loui Eriksson, Joe Morrow, and Matt Fraser. In his first full season with the
Bruins, Smith scored 20 goals and 31 assists, having his best season in the NHL
thus far. Prior to the contract extension, Smith scored 12 goals and 23 assists
in 63 games.
Smith was also the winner of the Seventh Player Award,
presented by NESN and the Boston Bruins. The Seventh Player Award is an award
that is presented to the Bruin who exceeded the expectations of Bruins Fans
during the 2013-2014 season. (Via NHL Bruins).
As the season continues to wind down, Smith will be looking
to continue to contribute, clocking three assists in his last three games.
