Here are the salary details of Hampus Lindholm’s huge new contract with Bruins originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston
Not only did the Bruins pull off a blockbuster move, they’ve also signed Lindholm to a long-term contract extension worth 52 million over eight years, with a $6.5 million salary cap hit.
Lindholm is in the final year of his current contract and would have been an unrestricted free agent if unsigned in July.
The Bruins reaching an extension soon after completing the trade for Lindholm is not a surprise — just look at what they gave up to get him. You don’t part with quality assets like a first-round pick, two second-rounders and a young NHL caliber player in Urho Vaakanainen for a rental.
Locking up the former Ducks star for eight years and solidifying a blue line with a top four of Lindholm, Charlie McAvoy, Matt Grzelcyk and Brandon Carlo all signed through at least the 2023-24 season is a great situation for the Bruins.
And if you add Jeremy Swayman to the mix on his rookie contract, all of a sudden you have an excellent foundation for a strong defensive team over the next several years.
