Bruins make qualifying offer to Phil Kessel

Joe Haggerty of is reporting that the Bruins have made Phil Kessel a qualifying offer. Details of the offer were not disclosed, but Kessel's agent Wade Arnott has confirmed this report. By formally offering Kessel a qualifying offer, it ensures that he remains a restricted free agent after July 1st. Had the Bruins not offered Kessel a qualifying offer and he was not signed by July 1st, we would become an unrestricted free agent.
