Cross inked a one-year, two-way contract with Boston on Wednesday.

Since being selected in the second round of the 2007 NHL Draft, Cross has appeared in just three regular-season NHL contests, garnering a lone helper in that span. The 27-year-old has been a steady blue-line presence for AHL Providence for the past several seasons and is coming off a 2016-17 campaign in which he posted a career-high 35 points. Cross is not especially likely to land regular duty with the big club in 2017-18, but when injuries hit, he'll be a candidate for recall.
