Bruins, Carlo agree to Contract Extension

The deal sees Don Sweeney signing Brandon Carlo to a six-year extension worth $24.6 million.
Brandon Carlo

Brandon Carlo's place of residence will be staying in the New England region for quite some time. 

The Bruins locked up the right-shot blueliner who was a pending unrestricted free agent to a six-year deal worth $24.6 million dollars at an annual average value of $4.1 million. Last season, Carlo struggled with upper body and oblique injuries and only played in 27 regular season games, recording four points. Carlo would play in eight post-season games, but missed the final three Bruins playoff games with a concussion. 

When healthy, Carlo has been a major contributor in Boston. Since his rookie campaign in 2016-17, Carlo has led Boston in short-handed time on ice and is fourth in games played with 324. 

With the retirement of Kevan Miller earlier today, Carlo is a part of a younger defense corps that also includes Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk both of whom have been key in Boston's postseason success in these past few seasons. 

We'll have to wait and see if Don Sweeney does more for Boston's back end this summer. But this is a team that values Carlo and want him in a Bruins jersey for a long time to come.
