Blake Wheeler's agent Matt Keator has informed the Bruins that his client has filed for arbitration. All players who are eligible for arbitration had to make their intentions known by 5:00 PM on Monday.

Mark Stuart, who is also represented by Keator did not file for arbitration. According to Keator, the sides are closing in on a new deal for the defenseman, saying "We're close enough that I felt we didn't need to get to arbitration".
