The Boston Bruins announced today that the club has come to an agreement with forward Colby Cave. The 6′-1″ 201-pound Battleford, Saskatchewan, Canada native signed a two-year, two-way extension worth $675,000 at the National Hockey League level. Cave, a 23-year-old restricted free agent ended his three-year entry-level contract that he signed in early April of 2015 this year and is expected to be in the running for the American Hockey Leagues Providence Bruins captaincy vacancy with the departure of former B’s defenseman Tommy Cross. Fellow Black N’ Gold Productions colleague Jen Stasio mentioned Cave and a few others that could be considered for the leadership role in her article ( CLICK HERE ) on July 6, 2018.

The undrafted forward came to the Bruins organization after a five-year career with the Swift Current Broncos of the Western Hockey League where he appeared in 287 games posting 95-107-202 numbers. Spending a majority of his pro career with the Bruins top minor-pro affiliate in Providence, Cave has contributed 37-60-97 numbers in his three seasons in the AHL. Colby has seen some time in the NHL as an emergency call-up but has zero points in three appearances but could be considered for the third line center role for the upcoming 2018-19 season for the Bruins organization. If Cave doesn’t make the NHL club out of B’s training camp he’ll once again be an important member of the depth of this organization and a leader as he served as an assistant captain for the last two seasons with the Baby B’s.
#Bruins sign their lone remaining RFA, Colby Cave to a 2 year/2-way contract. The deal will pay him league minimum in each of those 2 seasons at the NHL level.
Cave will once again be an RFA when his new contract expires in 2 years. https://t.co/QVKzjD3UpT
