The Bruins just announced that they have signed Jakob Forsbacka-Karlsson to an Entry Level Contract effective as of...5:09ish this evening!
JFK, as he was known at BU, was prolific throughout his two year run as a Terrier, with his final statline being 33 points in 39 games.
Forsbacka-Karlsson will be following the team, but the Bruins will have to pick their spot to play him as even one game as a Bruin will burn a year of his ELC right off the bat...similar to McAvoy’s deal, now that you look at it. Presumedly this could mean McAvoy and JFK could end up playing in Boston by the very end of the season?
Either way, Welcome JFK to the Boston Bruins organization!
