The Boston Bruins have locked up at least one important part of their future.
The Bruins have signed head coach Bruce Cassidy to a multi-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday morning.
The length and terms of the contract weren't disclosed, but our Joe Haggerty notes a Cassidy extension had been in the works.

Cassidy is entering his third full season as Bruins head coach since taking over for Claude Julien midway through the 2016-17 campaign. He's enjoyed a very successful tenure, leading Boston to 112 points in 2017-18 and taking the B's to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Final last season.
The 54-year-old currently owns the fourth-best winning percentage in team history at .670 after going 117-52-22 to date.
