Danton Heinen's arbitration hearing set for August 3

11 July 2019

"The Langley, British Columbia native was originally selected by the Bruins in the fourth round (116th overall) of the 2014 NHL Entry Draft".

Heinen and Peter Cehlarik were the only two Bruins restricted free agents eligible for salary arbitration, but Cehlarik opted to keep negotiating with the team and signed a one-year, two-way deal for $700,000 earlier this week. He tallied 47 points as a rookie in 2017-18 and followed it up with an 11-goal, 34-point campaign last season. He has 27 goals and 54 assists in 162 career games. Heinen scored two goals and posted eight points in 24 playoff games as the Bruins lost to the St. Louis Blues in the Stanley Cup Final.

Avalanche-turned-Leaf forward Alex Kerfoot recently signed a four-year, $14 million ($3.5 million AAV) contract with Toronto, and has posted nearly identical numbers to Heinen to date.

Heinen, who last week had filed for salary arbitration, is the first of three key restricted free agents to re-sign with the Bruins.

The 24-year-old will make $2.8 million over each of the next two seasons, the Bruins announced late Tuesday. Any opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect those of 98.5 The Sports Hub, Beasley Media Group, or any subsidiaries.
