Mike Reilly signs the biggest contract of his career with the Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins announced they have extended defenseman Mike Reilly's contract for three years. The deal will pay him $3 million annually per season.

The former Montreal Canadien has become an indispensable part of the Massachusetts team. He has performed well on the Bruins' top-4 since he was acquired from the Senators on April 11. In short, a well-deserved contract for the American defenseman.

The 28-year-old collected a total of 27 points (all assists) in 55 games last year with the Bruins and Senators. He also added 4 assists in 11 playoff games.

Remember that in the past, he had a hard time making the Tricolore's lineup on a regular basis.


He was obviously not one of Claude Julien's favorites. The Montreal Canadiens traded him to the Senators for Andy Sturz and a fifth round pick in 2021.
