NEW YORK (Reuters) - Tyler Seguin, the second overall pick in this year’s National Hockey League draft, has agreed to an entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins, the team said on Tuesday.
Financial terms of the contract were not disclosed but several media reports said the 18-year-old forward signed a three-year deal with a maximum base salary of $900,000 and bonuses that could boost it as high as $3.75 million a year.
Ranked the number one junior prospect by NHL Central Scouting, Seguin played two seasons with the Ontario Hockey League’s Plymouth Whalers, scoring 69 goals and 104 assists in 124 regular season games.
Last season, Seguin had 48 goals and 106 points to tie Taylor Hall, the first overall pick, for the scoring title in the Ontario Hockey League.
