What Will Jeremy Swayman’s Contract Extension Look Like Next Season?

From the beginning of his career, Jeremey Swayman looked like the future of the Bruins’ net. In his rookie season last year, the young goaltender made it known around the NHL he was here to stay.

The 23-year-old split games in the 2021-22 season with Linus Ullmark and finished with a 23-14-3, a 2.41 goals against average, a .914 save percentage, and three shutouts.

The Anchorage, Alaska, native was selected 111th overall in the fourth round by the Bruins at the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. Swayman is set to become a restricted free agent after the 2022-2023 season. With how Swayman has developed so far and will only continue to improve in his sophomore season, general manager Don Sweeney will make locking up the goaltender a priority in the offseason.

With his age and only two years of experience in the NHL after this season, what will a Swayman extension look like? @BruinsCapSpace on Twitter recently shared some comparables that fans should expect:

The recent deal by Jake Oettinger may be the closest comparable after the season he just had for the Dallas Stars. Oettinger finished with a 30-15-1 record with a 2.53 GAA and a .914 save percentage in his first full season as the Dallas goaltender. After a long offseason of back and forth with the Stars organization, he came to terms on a three-year $12 million deal that pays him $4 million annually.

At 23 years old and already showing he has what it takes to be the number one netminder in Boston, Don Sweeney may look to lock up Swayman longer than three years. Swayman could see an offer in the five to six-year length with $5 million annually.

Swayman is the future in Boston, and fans should be excited for this upcoming season as he is poised for an even better season than last year. The 2022-2023 season kicks off on October 12th when the Bruins face the Washington Capitals on the road.
