Bruins sign Ryan Donato, add him to the NHL roster

Welcome aboard to the Harvard kid!

Olympics: Ice Hockey-Men Team Quarterfinal - USA-CZE David E. Klutho-USA TODAY Sports

The Bruins announced tonight that they've signed Ryan Donato to a two-year entry-level contract.

The team said that Donato will report to the Boston Bruins, not the Providence Bruins, and will be eligible to play tomorrow night.

The two-year deal will essentially become a one-year deal once Donato gets in a game, meaning it was probably a carrot the Bruins dangled to get him to sign.

Either way, he makes this roster better.

EDIT (7:34 PM): Apparently he will, in fact, play tomorrow.
