Hey, it looks like the Bruins aren't the only team that loves hometown guys!

Sean Kuraly is heading to Columbus, leaving the Bruins after five seasons.

Kuraly, as you may remember, is a native of Dublin, Ohio, and played his college hockey at Miami of Ohio.

We heard about this incessantly during the Bruins-Blue Jackets series back in 2019. Good times.

Anyways, not clear on what the AAV is for the deal, but it's fair to assume it's a raise over the $1.275 million he was making.

Kuraly had his ups and downs for the B's, scoring a bunch of big goals, particularly in the playoffs.

However, he had a pretty tough season last year, including going pointless in the playoffs.

With the arrival of Curtis Lazar and a new contract for Trent Frederic, the writing was kind of on the wall for Kuraly in Boston.

Best of luck back home. Thanks for all the big goals!
