Bruins have made ‘significant progress’ in re-signing Taylor Hall, according to GM Don Sweeney

Don Sweeney, who generally plays his cards so close to his vest that even his jokers wear frowns, said Thursday morning that “significant progress” has been made in re-signing left wing Taylor Hall.

“So I hope that we will find a finish line,” the Bruins general manager said during a 15-minute Zoom session ahead of this weekend’s NHL Draft (Round 1 Friday night). “Looking forward to hopefully having him back as a big part of what we’re trying to do this year and moving forward — made significant progress there.”

A number of media outlets reported Wednesday, amid the buzz of the Seattle expansion draft, that Hall, an unrestricted free agent, was close to agreeing with the Bruins on a four-year contract extension carrying a $6 million cap hit.
