Last season Jake DeBrusk made it clear that he was unhappy as a Boston Bruins. DeBrusk was looking for a fresh start, but apparently that's changed. TSN's Ryan Rishaug reports that Boston Bruins forward Jake DeBrusk has rescinded the trade request he made last November.

According to Rishaug, DeBrusks's agent, Rick Valette and Bruins GM Don Sweeney spoke some time last week, Valette informed the Bruins that DeBrusk rescinded the request and would be happy to remain a member of the Bruins organization going forward. Rishaug adds that while DeBrusk could technically still be moved this offseason, it would be unlikely to happen at this point.
At the time of his trade request last November, things weren't going so well. He was dealing with being a healthy scratch, having just three goals and three assists in 17 games prior to the request. The 2015 first-round pick of the Bruins had a solid start to his career, putting up 120 points in 203 career games heading into 2020-21.
It's not clear how close the team ever came to moving the winger, but he did continue to play and eventually produce. Over the next 60 games after the request, DeBrusk would score an impressive 22 goals to go with 14 assists, finishing the season with 25 goals and 17 assists in 77 games.
The 14th pick in 2015 signed a two year extension on Trade Deadline day with a $4 Million AAV.
Superstar Brad Marchand had hip surgery that is expected to keep him out of the lineup for several months to start next season. Debrusk should see his role get elevated.
With the team facing so many injuries to key members of the roster to start next season they will need everyone to step up. They can't afford a slow start in a tough Eastern Conference.
