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

21

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.
