Bruins Rumors: Jake DeBrusk Expected To Test Free Agent Market

Jake DeBrusk's future with the Boston Bruins is shrouded in uncertainty as he approaches unrestricted free agency this offseason.

With his contract set to expire, DeBrusk finds himself at a pivotal juncture, poised to explore opportunities on the open market. Despite ongoing discussions between Bruins' General Manager Don Sweeney and DeBrusk's agent, Rick Valette, the prevailing sentiment suggests that DeBrusk will indeed test free agency come July 1st.

His recent on-ice contributions, including notable performances in key matchups, have only served to amplify interest from potential suitors, further fueling speculation about his departure from Boston.

This season, the 27-year-old has scored 15 goals and 18 assists for a total of 33 points across 64 games played.

Despite past instances where trade rumors swirled around DeBrusk, this time, his potential departure appears more imminent. As the playoffs unfold in the coming months, DeBrusk's performance on the ice will carry significant weight in shaping his market value and potential suitors' interest.

With the Bruins facing the likelihood of reallocating resources in the absence of DeBrusk, his venture into free agency could mark a significant shift in the team's roster makeup heading into the next season.

Over his seven-year career, spent entirely with Boston, DeBrusk has amassed 134 goals and 125 assists for 259 points across 449 games played.

However, should DeBrusk indeed opt to explore the free-agent market, his departure from Boston would not only signify the end of his tenure with the team but also open the door for new opportunities in his NHL journey. Photo Credit: Anne-Marie Sorvin-USA TODAY Sports
