BOSTON (AP) -- An arbitrator ruled Monday that the Boston Bruins will have to pay forward Dmitri Khristich $2.8 million, a raise of $850,000, if they want to keep him next season.

If the Bruins elect not to pay Khristich, he will become a free agent.

The 30-year-old left wing from Kiev, Ukraine, scored 29 goals and had 41 assists last season. In 12 playoff games, he had three goals and four assists.

The Bruins submitted a figure of $1.95 million to arbitration, which is what Khristich made last season, while he asked for $3.5 million, according to WBZ-AM in Boston.

Although the Bruins would not discuss what was offered and asked, a spokeswoman confirmed the arbitrator's award and said it "basically came down in the middle."

The team has 72 hours to make its decision.

Khristich has scored 225 goals with 282 assists for a total of 507 points in nine NHL seasons.
