BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, September 11, that the club has signed forward Tyler Seguin to a six-year contract extension through the 2018-19 season. Seguin’s contract is worth an average of $5.75 million annually over the six years of his deal. Chiarelli and Seguin will host a conference call with media later today regarding the signing.

The 2011-12 season marked Seguin’s second NHL season with the Bruins. The 6’1”, 182-pound native of Brampton, Ontario registered NHL career highs in goals, assists and points, recording 29-38=67 totals, along with 30 penalty minutes. His 29 goals and 67 points both ranked highest on the Bruins roster, making him the youngest player in team history to hold the club’s scoring title. Seven of Seguin’s goals were game-winners, and his plus-34 rating ranked second in the league behind teammate Patrice Bergeron. He was also selected to play in the 2012 NHL All-Star Game, after having previously competed in the NHL All-Star SuperSkills Competition in 2011.

The 20-year-old played in 74 games in his rookie season in 2010-11, recording 11-11=22 totals and 18 penalty minutes. Seguin added three goals and four assists in 13 games during the 2011 postseason, helping the Bruins capture the Stanley Cup championship. He also set a league record for points in one playoff period with a four-point (2-2) performance in the second period of Game 2 of the Eastern Conference Finals against Tampa Bay.

For his career, Seguin has played in 155 regular-season games with Boston, registering 40-49=89 totals and 48 penalty minutes with a plus-30 rating, and has recorded five goals and five assists in 20 playoff games.

Prior to joining the Bruins, the forward spent two seasons from 2008-10 with the Ontario Hockey League’s Plymouth Whalers, recording 69-104=173 totals in 124 games, with 82 penalty minutes and a plus-31 rating. In 2009-10, he became the first Whaler in team history to lead the OHL in scoring. Seguin was drafted second overall by Boston in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.
