Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk is set to hit free agency on July 1, and one of the teams reportedly interested in him is the Toronto Maple Leafs.

DeBrusk has been a consistent middle-six forward for the Bruins, regularly hitting the 20-goal and 40-point marks. He tends to elevate his game in the playoffs, scoring 5 goals and 11 points in 13 games this year. However, at 27 years old, he is set to hit free agency as the Bruins have not yet offered him a contract extension. This has caught the attention of several teams, including the Maple Leafs.

Despite the interest from other teams, DeBrusk has expressed a desire to stay with the Bruins. After the Bruins were eliminated from the playoffs, he revealed that he would like to re-sign with the team.
"I've always loved my time here."

Jake DeBrusk still envisions himself being a member of the Bruins next season despite free agency looming.

Bruins fans also seem to want DeBrusk to stay. Many highlight his playoff production and flexibility in the lineup as reasons to keep him.
Jake DeBrusk— led Bruins in playoffs points/goals, is third on team since 2021 in playoff points, scores 24G per-82GP in the regular season, plays LW/RW anywhere in the lineup, plays the PK, wants to be in Boston and turns 28 in October. That's not a guy you let walk. #NHLBruins

This summer will be crucial for the Bruins as they have several big decisions to make, which could impact the plans of other teams, including the Toronto Maple Leafs. Stay tuned to see how this situation unfolds.
