Pastrnak Continues to Shine as He’s Joined Some Elite Bruins Company

In a contract year, Pastrnak has been on another level as he continues to see his value and the price of his next contract skyrocket. Already one of the best goal scorers in the league, Pasta continues to prove he is just scratching the surface.

Pastrnak is currently on an 11-game point streak and, in that span, has tallied ten goals and five assists, including two massive goals last Friday night against the New Jersey Devils.

Thanks to his recent surge in production, Pasta has joined some elite Bruins company by recording 100 points in 2022. According to the Bruins PR:

Per NHL Stats, Pastrnak (56-46-102 in 78 games) also joined Brad Marchand (44-74-118 in 2019) and Adam Oates (36-96-132 in 1993) as the only Bruins in the past 30 years to register at least 100 regular-season points in a calendar year.

Per usual, Pasta was nothing but humble about it, as the team’s success always comes first for the Bruins’ superstar forward.

”I really don’t pay any attention to that. We obviously came back with a big turnaround win and have one more to go before going to the break, so that’s our focus.”

The 26-year-old now has 24 goals and 23 assists in 33 games this season and is on pace to score 50 goals for the first time in his career. His career high in goals currently sits at 48, which he set back during the 2019-2020 season when he led the league and brought home the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy. How many will he record this season?

The return of the playmaking David Krejci has played an important role, as the veteran center has always been a pass-first player. Krejci’s vision allows for him to find any player on the ice as he is a veteran set-up man with 531 career assists. The Czech line has been outstanding for the Bruins this season and should only continue to improve during the second half as they continue to build chemistry.
