David Pastrnak is on pace to have a 140-point season which would be an astounding career-high for the Czechian winger who wasn’t able to come to an agreement with the Boston Bruins on a contract extension over the off-season. It seems like not coming to an agreement was a bad decision by the Bruins front office.
Pastrnak has most definitely had the most benefit from the return of David Krejci. Out of the 5 goals, Pasta has scored this season, Krejci has had a hand in 3 of them. If Pastrnak can keep up this pace without missing any time, he could be the winner of his second Rocket Richard Trophy and his first Hart Trophy.
The Bruins are prepared to pay this man an insane amount of money over the next 10 years. He already mentioned that he wants to stay toward the end of the summer which should ease any anxiety about the star winger leaving the spoked-B. The only question on the mind is how much will Pasta’s value rise over the course of the season.
Pastrnak will be getting some extra defensive coverage as the Bruins’ best scorer but help is on the way! Brad Marchand is set to make his return to the ice in the coming weeks. Pastrnak is leading the way on the offense for the league’s best team at the start of the season.
