Danton Heinen Bruins avoid arbitration with two-year contract extension

Boston on Tuesday signed restricted free-agent center Danton Heinen to a two-year contract with an average annual value (AAV) of $2.8 million. The announcement came hours after an August 3 arbitration deadline was set.

Heinen was drafted in the fourth round (116th overall) by Boston in the 2014 NHL Draft.

The right-side element of Boston's third line with Charlie Coyle and Marcus Johansson (now with the Sabres), Heinen totaled two goals and eight points in 24 postseason games for the Bruins this past spring. He added two more goals in Boston's 24 playoff games. He tallied 47 points as a rookie in 2017-18 and followed it up with an 11-goal, 34-point campaign last season.

One down, two to go.

Heinen, who last week had filed for salary arbitration, is the first of three key restricted free agents to re-sign with the Bruins. He has 27 goals and 54 assists in 162 career games.

"Boston Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced today, July 9, that the team has signed forward Danton Heinento a two-year contract extension through the 2020-21 season with an annual National Hockey League cap hit of $2.8 million". He has also been a member of the Boston Chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association since 2013.
