The Bruins re-sign Pavel Zacha

Puck Pedia: The Boston Bruins have re-signed forward Pavel Zacha to a one-year contract with a $3.5 million salary cap hit.

The Bruins are over the cap ceiling

Puck Pedia: The Bruins are now $2.2 million over the salary cap after the Bergeron, Krejci, and Zacha contracts with 24 players under contract – 14 forwards, eight defense, and two goaltenders.

They could send a player down to become salary cap compliant and/or by placing either/both of Charlie McAvoy and Matt Grzelcyk on the LTIR to start the season.

Puck Pedia: The Bruins will have a second buyout window open on Wednesday for three days. Players that have a $4 million or more salary cap hit can be bought out and they must have been on their roster at the trade deadline.
