Boston is interested in keeping Zdeno Chara, who wants to be back with the team next season.
"He's been an iconic player for us, an important player for us," said Bruins GM Don Sweeney. "We're going to explore our opportunity with he and our players that either are UFA or RFA status and hopefully check off the boxes like we have with several other players and continue to move forward and improve our hockey club, and addressing Zdeno's contractual situation is part of that process." The 43-year-old blueliner signed one-year contracts in March of 2018 and 2019, but the COVID-19 pandemic stopped that streak in 2020. Sep 09 4:40 pm (EST)
