Jake DeBrusk, a longtime Boston Bruins forward, has finally left the team after years of trade rumors, signing a max-term deal with the Vancouver Canucks in free agency.

The Vancouver Canucks released the following statement after DeBrusk agreed to a seven-year contract with a $5.5 million annual average value (AAV):
Vancouver Canucks General Manager Patrik Allvin announced today that the club has agreed to terms with forward Jake DeBrusk on a seven-year contract with a $5.5 million AAV.

«Jake will be a great addition to our top six and gives us another offensive option up front,» said Allvin. «He is a smart two-way player who plays with pace. He isn't afraid to go to the tough areas of the ice and uses his strong motor and determination to drive play.»

DeBrusk, 27, appeared in 80 games with the Boston Bruins in 2023.24 posting 40 points (19-21-40), 18 penalty minutes, and a +4 plus/minus rating. He also appeared in 13 playoff games last season recording 11 points (5-6-11) and two penalty minutes.

The 6'1», 198lbs forward has played 465 career regular season games, all with Boston, recording 266 points (138-128-266), 101 penalty minutes, and a +51 plus/minus rating. The Edmonton, Alberta native has appeared in 86 career playoff matchups, posting 47 points (27-20-47) and 36 penalty minutes.

DeBrusk was originally selected by the Boston Bruins in the first round, 14th overall, in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

After signing with the Canucks, DeBrusk made headlines with his comments about leaving the Bruins:
"I wanted to go to a team that could win, and I'm very lucky that they wanted me," DeBrusk said.

This statement suggests that DeBrusk did not believe the Boston Bruins had the potential to win a Stanley Cup. Now with the Vancouver Canucks, it remains to be seen how much success he will bring to his new team.
