Don’t expect a farewell tour from Zdeno Chara next season.

The Boston Bruins captain confirmed at the team’s locker clean-out Tuesday that he would like to sign a new contract after his current seven-year deal concludes next season, according to WEEI.com’s Ty Anderson.

The 40-year-old is coming off his 11th season with the Bruins and 18th in the NHL. He posted 10 goals – his highest total of the past three years – and 29 points in 75 games. Despite his age, he still led the team in ice time, playing an average of 23:20 a night.

Chara will make $4 million next season, and if he can continue to to produce at his current clip, he should be welcomed back with open arms at a similar rate.
