Bruins’ Brandon Carlo Receives Six Year Contract Extension Worth $4.1M Per Season
Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, July 14, that the team has signed defenseman Brandon Carlo to a six-year contract extension with an annual NHL cap hit of $4.1 million.
“The Bruins are very pleased to have extended Brandon on a long-term deal,” said Sweeney. “Brandon is a player who has grown into a foundational defenseman with our team while also emerging as an important leader on and off the ice.”
Carlo, 24, skated in 27 games with the Bruins in 2020-21, tallying three goals and one assist for four points while averaging 18:43 time on ice per game. The 6-foot-4, 227-pound defenseman also appeared in eight playoff games in 2021.
Since his rookie season in 2016-17, Carlo ranks second on the Bruins in shorthanded time on ice (908:57), fourth in games played (324), fifth in time on ice per game (20:13) and tied for fifth in plus-minus.
The Colorado Springs, Colorado native was originally selected by the Bruins in the second round (37th overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
