Bruins sign Zdeno Chara to 1-year contract extension

Zdeno Chara, who is having a remarkable season at the age of 41, has signed a one-year extension to remain with the Bruins for a $5 million base salary plus an additional $1.75 million in possible performance-based bouses. With the way he has been playing this season Chara made this an easy decision for the Bruins.

Chara has helped lead the Bruins to a postseason berth in eight of his 11 seasons with the team, including a Stanley Cup championship during the 2010-11 season.

Zdeno Chara #33 of the Boston Bruins skates against the San Jose Sharks at SAP Center on March 15, 2016 in San Jose, California. While he's no longer a fixture on the power-play, Chara remain a rock on the penalty kill and quite often stays on the ice for the entire two-minute kill. This team is pretty much set up to be contenders for years to come, and bringing back Chara was practically a no-brainer. That's not to mention his 55 percent goals for percentage, which ranks 33rd among that group of 500-minute rearguards. He has put up 195 goals and 432 assists for 627 career points in 1,418 career games.

Of course, Chara return to the Bruins has to do with more than his offensive totals, defensive contributions or underlying numbers.


In his 20th season Chara has improved greatly.

One need look no further than his pairing with McAvoy for proof that the Bruins see the merit in placing up-and-comers alongside Chara.

Over his 20-year National Hockey League career, Chara has played for the New York Islanders, the Ottawa Senators, and the Boston Bruins.
