Pastrnak reveals first big post-contract purchase: $8 chicken teriyaki

Forward who re-signed with Bruins on Thursday lives large with meal @NHL

David Pastrnak hasn't changed even after signing a big contract.

The Boston Bruins forward, who signed a six-year, $40 million deal Thursday, revealed Saturday his first big purchase after signing.

It was an $8 chicken teriyaki dinner.

Tweet from @NHLBruins: So, @pastrnak96, what's the first big thing you're going to buy?"Nothing, I got dinner yesterday for $8...rice and chicken teriyaki." ��

Pastrnak, the Bruins second-leading scorer in 2016-17, spent his offseason training in Czech Republic. Besides his lavish meal, he also returned to Boston on Friday, which was a sight for the sore eyes of Bruins fans.

Tweet from @NHLBruins: Spotted at Logan: ��.

Next time, instead of the teriyaki, maybe he'll go with the pasta.
