Tuukka Rask is set to become an unrestricted free agent on Sunday, but it appears as though he may not even get that far before signing a new deal.

According to an ESPN report, the Bruins are close to re-signing Rask.

Rask is poised to be the Bruins' No. 1 goalie next season. Tim Thomas has hinted that he will not play next year, and even if he does decide to play, it will likely not be with the Bruins.

If Rask isn't signed before Sunday, he will be a restricted free agent and could receive offer sheets from other teams, but according to ESPN, the Bruins would have matched any offer.
