Bruins, Marchand agree on four-year, 18 million extension

It looks like "The Honey Badger" will be pestering Bruins opponents from the TD Garden for quite some time.

The Bruins announced today that they've agreed to a four-year extension with Brad Marchand, worth 18 million -- 4.5 million annually.

Marchand is going into his third season with the team and coming off a year in which he was one of their best players.

The 59, 183-pound native of Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia registered NHL career highs in goals, assists and points in 2011, recording 28-27=55 totals, along with 87 penalty minutes in 76 games. His 28 goals ranked second on the Bruins, behind Tyler Seguins 29 tallies, and his plus-31 rating ranked fifth in the league.
