The Bruins have crossed a big item off of their to-do list: Brandon Carlo has a new deal!
The Bruins announced this afternoon that Carlo has been signed to a six-year contract extension. The deal comes with a cap hit of $4.1 million.
The 24-year-old defenseman was set to be a restricted free agent before inking the new deal.
At first glance, it seems like a great deal for the Bruins: Carlo has steadily improved and become an essential part of the B's blue line, as evidenced by the end of the Islanders series.
To have a player like Carlo locked down for just over $4 million against the cap is a no-brainer.
The only concern with the contract is likely Carlo's injury history, as he's suffered multiple concussions in recent years.
Still, that was never likely to be a reason to not bring him back, so this deal seems like a slam dunk for the Bruins.
Carlo has played 324 games for the B's since breaking into the league in the 2016-2017 season.
