Bruins Rumors: Insider Provides Insight Into Jake DeBrusk Situation

As the March 8 NHL trade deadline looms large, the Boston Bruins find themselves at a crossroads regarding Jake DeBrusk's future, according to Mick Colageo's analysis on Boston Hockey Now.

DeBrusk, a 27-year-old winger, has experienced a career filled with peaks and valleys during his time with the Bruins.

His current two-year, $8 million contract extension is set to expire this year, potentially making him an unrestricted free agent, and historically, the Bruins have seldom re-signed their unrestricted free agents.

DeBrusk's journey in Boston has been marked by injuries, trade requests, and flashes of brilliance on the ice.

While he has recently showcased improved performance and been recognized as part of the Bruins' core group, the lingering question remains - will he remain in Boston?

The team faces a critical decision - whether to re-sign him, trade him for assets, or let him walk into unrestricted free agency.

However, as Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic suggests, trading him for valuable returns seems unlikely unless they secure a significant player in return, with the best potential outcome possibly being a second-round pick and a B-grade prospect.
