The Bruins just signed two 26-year olds, Jamie Tardif and Josh Hennessy, to two-way contracts. Tardif's is for two years, Hennessy's is for one.
Both will likely end up in Providence this year.
Tardiff, a native of Welland Ontario, was the captain of the Red Wings' affiliate Grand Rapids Griffins last season, where he put up 27 goals and 27 assists in 77 games.
Hennessy, a local guy from Brockton, MA, spent last season with HC Lugano, where he scored 9 goals and 10 assists in 36 games. Before that, for Binghamton in 2009-2010, he scored 30 goals and 38 assists in 78 games. Hennessy was one of the trailblazers for New England players, such as Providence's own Jordan Lavallee-Smotherman, playing in the QMJHL despite the language barrier. He spent four seasons with the Quebec Remparts, amassing 128 goals and 163 assists during his time there.
