The Boston Bruins and general manager Don Sweeney announced a roster move on Friday.
Boston has locked up backup goalie Jaroslav Halak to a one year contract.
The contract actually sees Halak take a bit of a hometown discount as he'll get paid $2.25million next year instead of the current $2.75million he makes on his current contract.
Halak has been absolutely exceptional since joining the Bruins as a backup and has registered a .921 save percentage and 2.36 goals against average over his two years with the Bruins.
It's nice to see him chose to stick around in Boston as he would have definitely got paid more on the open market.
