The Boston Bruins have secured defenseman Matt Grzelcyk's services for another four seasons with a $3,687,500 cap hit, the club announced Saturday.

Grzelcyk, who was a restricted free agent, had a salary arbitration hearing scheduled for Tuesday.

The Massachusetts-born blue-liner was coming off a two-year contract that carried a cap hit of $1.4 million.

Grzelcyk collected a career-high 21 points and averaged 18:04 in ice time over 68 games for Boston during his third full NHL campaign this past season. The 26-year-old has spent his entire career with the Bruins since being drafted 85th overall in 2012.

He could be in for an increased role in 2020-21 following Torey Krug's departure and considering the uncertainty surrounding Zdeno Chara's future.

Forward Jake DeBrusk is now the team's only remaining RFA.
