Boston Bruins have made a choice on Jake DeBrusk, but it is unlikely to be the one you expect.

Boston announced on Monday that DeBrusk has agreed to a two-year agreement with a $4 million annual cap cost.

DeBrusk has openly revealed his recent pleas for a trade, thus the signing comes as a surprise. As a result, the 25-year-old has long been the focus of trade discussions.

As a result, it's reasonable to speculate that the signing is merely a prelude to a trade

However, it's unclear why the Bruins should be the ones to sign the contract extension.

For whatever team ends up with DeBrusk on their roster, two years at $4 million per year is feasible

For what it's worth, DeBrusk has been fairly productive in recent weeks

In his last 14 games, dating back to February 19, he has eight goals and 11 points.
