Report: Dennis Seidenberg inks four-year, $16 million deal with B's
The Boston Bruins have re-signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year extension worth $16 million.
The Boston were interested in getting defenseman Dennis Seidenberg signed to an extension before he entered the final season of his contract. They did just that on Thursday.
According to TSN's Darren Dreger, Seidenberg and the Bruins have come to terms on a four-year extension that's worth $16 million, or $4 million annually. Dreger also reports the deal has a no-trade clause for the veteran.
It's a slight increase for Seidenberg, whose current contract carries an annual average value of $3.25 million. The new price falls in line with the production they have given him and what they can expect. I wouldn't be too concerned about the four-year term either as the contract will kick in when Seidenberg is 33, meaning it will take him to 37. He'll be up there in age and the next contract will be dicey, but it's not terribly risky now.
The German Tank, as some call him, has been a steady defenseman since he came to Boston in a trade. It's easy for a lot of guys to look in Boston's system, true, but Seidenberg has more than held his own. Really, he's been a very solid defenseman for them.
Seidenberg does pitch in offensively too, at least a little. Last season he had four goals and 13 assists in 46 games for the Bruins but he's typically more a defensive defenseman.
