Bruins' Callum Booth: Inks one-year contract
Booth signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Bruins on Thursday, per PuckPedia.
Booth has yet to make his NHL debut, but he could be in the conversation for the backup goalie position in 2021-22. He'll likely need an impressive training camp to take that job from Jeremy Swayman. Booth would likely be the starter at AHL Providence if he doesn't make the Opening Night roster.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Charlie Coyle: Projected No. 2 center
Coyle (knee) is the favorite to serve as the Bruins' No. 2 center next season.
Coyle, who recorded six goals and 16 points in 51 regular-season contests last season, is bouncing back from a knee procedure, but expects to be ready for training camp. With a physical issue that quite likely slowed him in 2020-21 having been addressed, the 29-year-old, who's under contract with Boston through 2025-26, has a big opportunity in front of him this coming season, namely filling the void created by the departure of the team's long-time No. 2 center, David Krejci. Assuming Coyle cements the role, he'd be in line to man the middle of a trio with Taylor Hall and Craig Smith, a context that would provide the skilled 6-foot-3, 213-pounder with a boost in his fantasy upside....

Bruins' John Beecher: Expected to return to college
Beecher, who is approximately five months removed from labrum surgery, expects to play for the University of Michigan in 2021-22, Conor Ryan of MassLive.com reports.
Beecher's sophomore campaign at Michigan finished prematurely, as the 2019 first-round pick was forced to undergo season-ending shoulder surgery after just 16 games, in which he racked up four goals and eight points. So, it makes sense that he and the Bruins have evidently decided another season of college hockey makes sense at this stage in his development. Beecher could, however, sign his entry-level deal following the conclusion of the NCAA season if he performs well for Michigan this year.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Nick Wolff: Lands two-way deal with Boston
Wolff signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Bruins on Thursday.
Wolff spent most of the 2020-21 campaign with AHL Providence, picking up two assists in 24 contests. The University of Minnesota-Duluth product will almost certainly spend the majority of the upcoming season in the minors.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Tyler Lewington: Signs with Boston on Wednesday
Lewington signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Bruins on Wednesday, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Lewington only played five games at any level last year, earning one assist in two games with the Predators while logging three scoreless contests with AHL Chicago. The 26-year-old defenseman isn't expected to be on the Bruins' Opening Night roster, so he'll likely begin the year with AHL Providence.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Steven Fogarty: Moves on to Boston
Fogarty signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Bruins on Wednesday, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Fogarty earned his first three NHL points in nine contests with the Sabres last year. The 28-year-old forward will likely have a tough time drawing into a deeper Bruins' forward group, so expect the Pennsylvania native to play at AHL Providence in 2021-22.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Troy Grosenick: Heading east
Grosenick signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Bruins on Wednesday, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Grosenick spent last year with the Kings, and he appeared in two contests, his first since the 2014-15 campaign. The 31-year-old goalie will provide organizational depth for the Bruins, who appear to have a transitional period in their crease with Jaroslav Halak signing with the Canucks and Tuukka Rask (hip) unsigned after undergoing hip surgery. Grosenick will likely play at AHL Providence unless injuries arise among Linus Ullmark or Jeremy Swayman.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Samuel Asselin: Reaches entry-level deal
Asselin signed a two-year, entry-level contract with the Bruins on Wednesday, Mark Divver of the New England Hockey Journal reports.
Asselin has spent the last two seasons with AHL Providence, where he has amassed 19 points across 30 games. The 23-year-old forward likely isn't ready to make the jump to the NHL ranks just yet, especially for a Bruins team not lacking in depth at his natural center position.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Nick Foligno: Lands deal with Boston
Foligno signed a two-year, $7.6 million contract with the Bruins on Wednesday.
Foligno appeared in 49 games split between Columbus and Toronto last season, totaling seven goals, 20 points, 82 shots and a whopping 133 hits while averaging 17:46 of ice time per contest. The 33-year-old vet will almost certainly have a reduced role with Boston in 2021-22, so his fantasy value may be limited to leagues that reward hits -- he'll continue to be a physical force for the foreseeable future.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Tomas Nosek: Secures contract with Boston
Nosek signed a two-year, $3.5 million contract with the Bruins on Wednesday.
Nosek missed extended time last season due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocols as well as an undisclosed injury, but he was pretty productive when healthy, picking up 18 points and 51 hits while averaging 13:00 minutes of ice time per contest through 38 appearances. The 28-year-old winger will make a fine addition to Boston's bottom-six group, but he likely won't produce enough offense to warrant consideration in most fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Erik Haula: Headed to Beantown
Haula signed a two-year, $4.75 million contract with the Bruins on Wednesday.
Haula was decent in a middle-six role with Nashville last season, picking up nine goals, 21 points, a plus-4 rating and 85 shots on net while averaging 16:00 minutes of ice time per contest. The 30-year-old forward will likely have to settle for less ice time in Boston, which could make it difficult for him to crack the 30-point mark.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Linus Ullmark: Signs with Boston
Ullmark (lower body) signed a four-year, $20 million contract with the Bruins on Wednesday, Pierre LeBrun of The Athletic reports.
Tuukka Rask, who is expected to be sidelined until January or February after undergoing hip surgery, is an unrestricted free agent, and Jaroslav Halak signed with the Canucks on Wednesday, so Ullmark is poised enter the season as Boston's unquestioned No. 1 netminder. The 27-year-old netminder has played pretty well behind a shaky Sabres defense over the past two campaigns, going 26-20-6 while posting a respectable 2.67 GAA and .916 save percentage. Ullmark is a bit unproven, but he'll be a risk worth taking in fantasy drafts based on his favorable team situation alone. The Swede was dealing with an injury toward the end of the 2020-21 campaign, but he's now fully healthy and ready to rock.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Derek Forbort: Pens three-year deal with Boston
Forbort signed a three-year, $9 million contract with the Bruins on Wednesday, Fluto Shinzawa of The Athletic reports.
Forbort appeared in all 56 games with the Jets last season, picking up 12 points, 80 hits and 115 blocks while averaging 20:44 of ice time per contest. The 29-year-old blueliner should slot in as a dependable bottom-four option and penalty-killer with Boston in 2021-22.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Mike Reilly: Back in Boston
Reilly signed a three-year contract with the Bruins on Tuesday worth about $3 million annually, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Reilly was shipped from Ottawa to Boston in April and appeared in 15 games after the trade. He averaged 21:04 in ice time for the Bruins while recording eight assists and 16 hits, and he didn't score a goal on 31 shots.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' James Greenway: Acquired in trade
Greenway was brought in by Boston from Toronto on Monday for future trade considerations, CapFriendly reports.
The Bruins are only buying themselves some extra negotiating time, as Greenway needs to be signed by Aug. 15, 2021 or he will become an unrestricted free agent. In 14 games with the University of Maine this past season, the 23-year-old blueliner notched two goals and three helpers. Even if he does sign with Boston, Greenway should be expected to spend some time in the minors further developing his game.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Brett Harrison: Drafted 85th overall at '21 Draft
Harrison was drafted 85th overall by the Bruins at the 2021 NHL Draft on Saturday.
The cancelled OHL season did Harrison no favors. He played just seven games in a Finnish Jr. league in addition to seven more with Team Canada at the World-U18's. Harrison wasn't particularly effective at either stop, although 14 games are hardly enough to draw any real conclusions. He is a big body (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) with an excellent release on his shot. Harrison reads plays well in the offensive zone and would have been a candidate to go considerably higher had the OHL played this year. A good portion of his future success will be dictated upon his willingness to drive to the net and create havoc. He plays on the perimeter far too often for such a big kid. Harrison was making strides in that area in the later stages of the 2019-20 campaign, so we will see if he can carry that over when the OHL continues play next season.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Fabian Lysell: Top skillset slips to 21st overall
Lysell was drafted 21st overall by the Bruins at the 2021 NHL Draft on Friday.
Lysell's skills are highlight-reel worthy -- he rivals Kent Johnson (Columbus) for the most impressive offensive skills in this draft class. And he's an irritating backchecker who can steal pucks and turn up ice in a flash. We love Lysell's ability to drive wide and go fearlessly to the net. But the NHL is a different level than the SHL, so we want to see if he can translate his eye-popping skills into effective North American production. And overcome the perception of character issues. If he can, you can count on Lysell to deliver second-line production with first-unit power-play output.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Taylor Hall: Secures four-year contract
Hall agreed to terms on a four-year, $24 million contract with the Bruins on Thursday, Matt Porter of The Boston Globe reports.
Hall saw his 2020-21 campaign revived by a move to Boston after scoring just two goals in 37 games for the Sabres. With the Bruins, the 29-year-old winger grabbed eight goals in 16 regular-season contests, adding another three goals in 11 playoff clashes. The Calgary native figures to be a lock for the second line and No. 1 power-play unit with Boston, where he should provide plenty of fantasy value.... See More ... See Less
Bruins' Taylor Hall: Progresses toward new deal
The Bruins and Hall are progressing toward a contract extension for the winger, Eric Russo of the team's official site reports.
After a forgettable tenure with the Sabres last season, Hall was traded to Boston where he finished strong, notching eight goals and 14 points over 16 regular season games. The 29-year-old ended up being a great fit with the Bruins, helping stabilize the team's second line in the process. Ideally, Boston will be able to retain the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft on team-friendly terms, while also re-signing playmaking center David Krejci, who meshed well with Hall down the stretch last season....

Bruins' Tuukka Rask: Hip surgery scheduled
GM Don Sweeney indicated that Rask is on track to undergo hip surgery at the end of July, Eric Russo of the Bruins' official site reports.
The procedure is expected to keep Rask out until early 2022. The 34-year-old is headed for unrestricted free agency, but has already indicated that he has no interest in playing for any team other than the Bruins. Given that he won't be ready to play when the 2021-22 season starts -- regardless of whether Rask re-signs down the road -- the Bruins seem likely to add goaltending depth to complement the team's returning duo of Jeremy Swayman and Daniel Vladar....
