The Boston Bruins signed defenseman Charlie McAvoy to an eight-year, $76 million extension on Friday.

The deal, reportedly the largest in franchise history, includes an average annual value of $9.5 million and $26.5 million in signing bonuses. It keeps the former first-round pick in Boston through the 2029-30 season.

McAvoy, 23, will receive a $6 million salary with an additional $3.25 million signing bonus in 2021-22.

He opens his fifth season with Boston on Saturday night against the visiting Dallas Stars.

McAvoy tallied five goals and 25 assists in 51 games in 2020-21, finishing with a plus-22 plus/minus. He finished fifth in the Norris Trophy voting.

He has 122 points (24 goals, 98 assists) and a plus-80 plus/minus with 177 penalty minutes in 235 games since the Bruins selected him with the 14th overall pick in 2016.
