|(6/1/18) Agostino, a pending unrestricted free agent, will not be retained by the Bruins, Kevin Paul Dupont of The Boston Globe reports.|
Bruins GM Don Sweeney told reporters that he'll let Agostino, Paul Postma and Brian Gionta walk as unrestricted free agents this summer. There had been hopes that Agostino, who led the AHL in scoring and was the league's named MVP in the 2016-17 season, could crack the Boston lineup and provide secondary scoring, but he only appeared in five games with the big club, logging one helper. Meanwhile, Agostino continued his success at the AHL level, recording 16 goals and 53 points in 64 games for Providence. While the 26-year-old should have no trouble catching on with another organization this offseason, it remains to be seen if Agostino will be able to carve out a regular role at the NHL level.
