Bruins, Marchand agree to new, four-year deal

Posted: Updated:

 BOSTON (AP) - Against the backdrop of an NHL lockout, the Bruins agreed to a new, four-year deal with forward Brad Marchand on Friday.

Marchand, 24, a key cog in the Bruins' run to the 2011 Stanley Cup, will make $4.5 million per season. He had 28 goals and 27 assists last season, as Boston won the Northeast Division but lost in the first round to Washington.

Marchand, who was a plus-31 last season, was drafted No. 71 in 2006, and has 49 goals and 48 assists in 173 career games.

The deal comes as the NHL and NHLPA prepare for a potential lockout. The deadline for a new collective bargaining agreement is Sept. 15. The regular season is slated to begin on Oct. 11.

Marchand has 12 goals and 21 points in 32 postseason games for Boston.
