Erik Haula signs two-year deal with Boston Bruins

Erik Haula has signed a two-year, 4.75M deal with the Boston Bruins (2.375M AAV).

Haula got his first chance in the NHL early in his first full pro season when the Wild promoted him from Iowa of the AHL on Nov. 29, 2013. He had an assist in his first NHL game and was named the game’s third star. The Wild sent Haula down Dec. 9 after six games, but he returned later that month and became a fixture in Minnesota’s lineup.

Haula appeared in all 13 of Minnesota’s 2014 Stanley Cup Playoff games, scoring four goals and seven points to help the Wild advanced to the second round for the second time in their history.

He played the next three seasons with the Wild as a bottom-six forward before being taken by the Vegas Golden Knights in the 2017 NHL Expansion Draft. Haula had NHL career bests in goals (29), assists (26) and points (55), helping the Golden Knights set numerous NHL records for first-year teams.

Haula was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes on June 26, 2019. He played 41 games for the Hurricanes before he was traded to the Florida Panthers on Feb. 24, 2020.

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
