The Associated Press

BOSTON (AP) — The Boston Bruins have signed forward Brad Marchand to an eight-year, $49 million contract extension.

The team announced the deal on Monday as Marchand prepares to play for Canada in the finals of the hockey World Cup.

The 28-year-old Marchand had a career-high 37 goals and 60 points last season. In seven NHL seasons — all with the Bruins — he has 153 goals and 136 assists.

He was a member of Boston's Stanley Cup-winning team in 2011, with 11 goals in the playoffs, the second-most on the team.
