The signing on Wednesday comes after Rask finished his first full season as a starter with a strong playoff performance. The Bruins lost the Stanley Cup finals in six games to the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Bruins say that the annual salary cap charge on Rask's contract is $7 million but they didn't reveal the total value of the deal.

Rask was 19-10-5 with a 2.00 goals against average in the regular season. In the postseason, he had a 1.88 goals against average.

He became the starter after TimThomas, who backstopped the Bruins to the Stanley Cup championship in 2011, took this past season off.

According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the Bruins are 10/1 to win the 2014 Stanley Cup Finals. The Pittsburgh Penguins remain favored at 13/2 to win next season’s Cup, while the defending champion Chicago Blackhawks have the next-best odds at 15/2. The Red Wings and Blues, meanwhile, are both 12/1, respectively.
