Bruins sign Garnet Exelby, Lane MacDermid for additional depth in Providence

From the Bruins' press release: "Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, July 11, that the club has signed defenseman Garnet Exelby and forward Lane MacDermid to one-year, two-way contracts through the 2012-13 season. Exelby’s contract is worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $130,000 at the AHL level over the course of the deal. MacDermid’s contract is worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $70,000 at the AHL level." Again, like Christian Hanson, Exelby is a depth signing to assist in Providence. MacDermid has an opportunity to develop into a good third-or-fourth liner down the road; good to see that the Bruins retain his services for the next year.

Bruins Sign Christian Hanson To One Year, Two-Way Contract

The Bruins announced today that they signed Christian Hanson to a one-year, two-way contract. The 6'4, 220 pound center from Glens Falls, NY started his career with the Maple Leafs, playing primarily in their farm system for the AHL Marlies. He spent last season with the Hershey Bears, where he picked up 10 goals and 11 assists in 52 games. Don't expect to see Hanson up with Boston, and if you do, the situation is probably pretty dire. He's a depth signing to help in Providence. Interestingly enough, the press release issued by the team directly states: " Hanson’s contract will be worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $105,000 at the AHL level." It's pretty nice that teams are revealing contract numbers now instead of saying that the numbers will not be disclosed at this time. (And yes, he is related to Dave Hanson, who played one of one of the Hanson brothers from Slap Shot. Expect the number of Chiefs jerseys at Providence games to bump up a little.)

Bruins Development Camp Roster Annnounced

"The Boston Bruins announced today, June 25, the expected roster for their sixth annual Development Camp, which will take place at Ristuccia Arena (190 Main St, Wilmington, MA 01887). Development Camp will open on Thursday, June 28, with the final session taking place on Monday, July 2. On-ice practices are open to the public. Please note that the schedule and roster are subject to change. The Development Camp roster features 29 players, including 15 forwards, eight defensemen and six goaltenders. The roster includes 22 players within the Bruins organization, counting Boston’s six selections at the 2012 NHL Entry Draft. Seven invites come from outside the prospect system and all play NCAA collegiate hockey."

Lightning Logic (WTF!?!?!)

So the Admirals are AHL champs. What would the Lightning, the NHL Affiliate, do? Well, change affiliations of course!

Bruins sign Paille through 2015, Bourque through 2014

The Bruins have agreed to terms with forwards Daniel Paille and Chris Bourque. Paille will remain in Black and Gold through the 2014-15 season and Bourque - acquired last week in a trade with Washington for Zach Hamill's rights - will be a Bruin through the 2013-14 season. Paille has been a member of the Bruins since being acquired in a trade with Buffalo early in the 2009-10 season. The former first-round draft pick of the Sabres has played in 186 regular season games for Boston, notching 25-22=47 totals with 55 penalty minutes. He's also played in 46 postseason games, earning 4-5=9 totals. He'll make $1.3 million per year. Bourque, son of former Bruin Ray Bourque and native of Boston, has only appeared in 33 NHL games all-time, accumulating 1-3=4 totals, but has been a regular 20-goal scorer at the AHL level in Hershey. Bourque's contract is worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $200,000 at the AHL level.

Tim Thom considering taking the year off

Very odd. Doubt it happens but intriguing nonetheless. Interesting aspect to it is the fact that his 35+ contract means retiring doesn't remove his cap hit from the books.

Rick Nash is Not Coming to Boston

Matt wrote about this four days ago. But nothing's changed. He's not coming. Not for David Krejci, not for Tuukka Rask and definitely not for Milan Lucic. So let's just refrain from entertaining these thoughts anymore, okay? great.

From Hockeyexpressen: Bruins sign Svedberg

A quick-and-dirty google translate of this article reveals that the Bruins have signed the 22-year-old Svedberg out of Brynas of the SEL. He had a .947 save percentage and 1.70 GAA during his 13 playoff games. The writer of the article says that Svedberg probably expects to start the season in Providence. Interesting...tandem of Khudobin and Svedberg? Where does that leave Hutchinson? IS SOMEONE GETTING TRADED OMG? Post your goalie related thoughts here.

Could the Bruins deal for Rick Nash?

Hey, folks. There's been some talk on the local radio here in Columbus that the Bruins may be getting ready to make a big offer for Rick Nash at the Draft. We put together some possible trade targets over at The Cannon. I'd love to hear what you guys think might be on the table.
