Earlier in the week, the Boston Bruins, champions of the Eastern Conference, secured the services of their goaltender Tuukka Rask with an eight-year contract for $56 million.

Rask was a restricted free agent.

On Friday, the Bruins signed another key piece of their championship team to a long-term deal.

Patrice Bergeron inked an eight-year, $52 million contract extension.

The new contract for the 27-year-old Bergeron, will begin after next season when his current three-year deal worth $15 million expires.

The 6’2, 194 pound Bergeron in 42 regular season games, scored 10 goals with 22 assists and 32 points. In 22 games in the Stanley Cup playoffs, scored nine goals, dished out six assists for 15 points.

The eight-year contract is the longest period of time that teams are allowed to sign NHL players.

The Boston Bruins have been added to that list of team’s who nobody thought would win the Stanley Cup. Since 2000, they join Colorado (2000-01), New Jersey (2002-03), Tampa Bay (2003-04), Carolina (2005-06), Anaheim (2006-07), Pittsburgh (2008-09) and Chicago last year.

After a 39-year hiatus without winning a Stanley Cup, the Bruins stole the series from the favored-Vancouver Canucks, 4 games to 3.

Goaltender Tim Thomas, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner as the most valuable player of the NHL postseason, made 37 saves in posting the second shutout of the Finals.

Patrice Bergeron and rookie Brad Marchand scored two goals apiece, and the Bruins beat the Canucks 4-0 on Wednesday night to win bring their first championship to Beantown since 1972.

43-year-old Mark Recchi has won his third Stanley Cup with a third franchise, plans to retire.

The Vancouver Canucks are 41-years-old and have never won a Stanley Cup and this was the closest they came to doing so.
