Rookie David Pastrnak is sticking with the Boston Bruins this season.
Pastrnak will play in his 10th game Saturday when the Bruins play host to the Columbus Blue Jackets, which will activate his entry-level contract.
The 18-year-old has four goals in three games since rejoining the Bruins after the world junior hockey championship. In eight games this season, entering tonight’s game, Pastrnak has five points.
Originally Boston’s first-round selection (25th overall) in 2014, Pastrnak had 10 goals and 27 points with the American Hockey League’s Providence Bruins prior to joining the Czech Republic for the Under-20 tournament.
