DeBrusk tallied 19 goals and 16 assists in 65 games last season. The 24-year-old got off to a slow start following his 27-goal campaign from 2018-19, scoring just once through his first 12 games. DeBrusk also scored just once in his final 14 contests, but he played at a 36-goal pace in his 39 games from Nov. 2 to Feb. 8.
The Edmonton, Alberta, native could get a shot to begin the season on the team's top line with both Brad Marchand and David Pastrnak likely out to start the year. However, the team expects the winger to settle on the club's second line with David Krejci and either Ondrej Kase or Craig Smith when the star duo returns.
The Bruins drafted DeBrusk 14th overall in 2015.
Boston is left with just under $3 million in projected cap space, according to CapFriendly.
