Taylor Hall and Boston Bruins Close to Inking Four-Year Extension

As per sources, Taylor Hall and the Boston Bruins are close to finalizing terms on a four-year contract extension.

As per a few sources, including Oilers Now host Bob Stauffer and Frank Seravalli of Daily Faceoff, Taylor Hall and the Boston Bruins are close to finalizing terms on a contract extension. The deal is reportedly worth $6 million per season and will offer a four-year commitment from the organization to the left-winger.

Stauffer spoke at great length about the deal on his Oilers Now show today and noted while a deal can’t be publicly announced yet, it is done and Hall will be staying with the Bruins. Meanwhile, early on Wednesday, Seravalli tweeted the two sides have “made meaningful progress with pending UFA Taylor Hall. Expectation is Hall will indeed remain in Boston after the signing moratorium is lifted. Wouldn’t be surprised to see a deal in the 4 years x $6 million neighborhood.”

Hall signed a one-year, $8 million contract with the Buffalo Sabres this past offseason. With that team, he was not terribly productive. The Sabres were arguably the worst team in hockey throughout most of the 2020-21 campaign and it didn’t take long for sources to start suggesting Hall would be traded. Boston was an immediate fit and when he was moved, Hall turned on the production that he didn’t have with the Sabres. In 16 games with the Bruins, Hall scored eight goals and 14 points, and he added five points in 11 playoff games.

The Deal That Finally Got Done

There were questions about whether or not Hall and the Bruins would work out an extension. Some chatter had him testing the market but he contended throughout his time with the team that he wanted to find a fit there and after the season, he noted it wasn’t about the money. Even still, $6 million per season is a fair price to pay for a player that has the potential to score 50-60 points, but could also be a player that disappears for long stretches of time.

Hall is a former Hart Trophy winner and if he’d hit the market, could have gotten the same or more from another team. In Boston, he knows where he stands, he knows the team will try to contend for the playoff every season and he knows the club has a rich history of winning.
