Bruins bring back Hall on 4-year deal with $6M AAV
The pact includes no-trade coverage, reports TSN's Darren Dreger.
Boston acquired Hall from the Buffalo Sabres for a second-round pick and forward Anders Bjork before last year's trade deadline. Hall was an excellent fit on the Bruins' second line, and he immediately upped his production upon arrival with 14 points in 16 regular-season games.
Hall's new contract will make him the fourth-highest paid forward on Boston's team-friendly payroll. The winger trails captain Patrice Bergeron ($6.875 million), David Pastrnak ($6.66 million), and Brad Marchand ($6.125 million).
The Bruins have roughly $20 million in cap space after re-signing Hall, according to CapFriendly. Veteran David Krejci and goaltender Tuukka Rask are among the key players on Boston's books headed to free agency.
