The Bruins and their 24-year-old winger have set an August 3 date for the forward's potential arbitration hearing.

Heinen, 24, took the ice for 77 games in his second National Hockey League season and finished with 34 points (11 goals, 23 assists) and a plus-13 rating.

The 24-year-old will make $2.8 million over each of the next two seasons, the Bruins announced late Tuesday.

Selected by Boston in the fourth round (No. 116) of the 2014 NHL Draft.

They avoided salary arbitration with Danton Heinen by giving the winger a two-year extension.

He is coming off his three-year, entry-level contract. He added two goals and six assists in the playoffs.

The Canadian winger has 81 points in 162 National Hockey League games. If Heinen is awarded a two-year deal in excess of $3.5 million, the Bruins could instead opt for a one-year deal at that given salary. He has 27 goals and 54 assists in 162 career games.

No matter how it's sliced, it's hard to imagine the Bruins actually wanting this to go to arbitration.

Defensemen Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo are the team's two remaining unsigned restricted free agents. He has also been a member of the Boston Chapter of the Professional Hockey Writers' Association since 2013.
