The Bruins announced today that Brad Marchand has agreed to a contract extension.

According to TSN, Marchand has signed a two-year, $5 million contract. That would give him him an annual cap hit of $2.5 million.

Marchand will earn $2 million this season and $3 million in 2012-13. Marchand will be under contract and alongside his teammates when camp officially opens on Friday at TD Garden.

Marchand’s extension was framed primarily by the two-year, $5.75 million contract that Logan Couture signed with San Jose. Couture, one of three finalists for the Calder Trophy last year, scored 32 goals.

Marchand scored 21 goals and 20 assists.
