BOSTON (AP) — Bruins goalie Tuukka Rask has signed an eight-year contract to stay with Boston.

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 Tim Thomas, who backstopped the Bruins to the Stanley Cup championship in 2011, took this past season off.
