Today, Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli announced the signing of defenseman David Warsofsky to a one-year, two-way contract. The contract is worth $600,000 at the NHL level.
Warsofsky was called up from Providence for six games with the Big B's in the 2013-2014 season, and was impressive in those games. He scored his first NHL goal on December 28, 2013 and his first NHL assist on February 8, 2014, both coming against the Ottawa Senators.
The Marshfield, MA native appeared in 56 games for the Providence Bruins last season, scoring six goals and 26 assists for 32 points and a plus-8 rating. His 32 assists were good for fourth on the team. In 12 playoff games, Warsofsky registered two goals and seven assists (finishing second on the team), landing him fourth on the team with nine points.
The 24-year-old has skated in a total of 190 games with the P-Bruins, totaling 14 goals and 66 assists for 80 points over that span.
Warsofsky being a former Boston University Terrier makes this the second news of the day regarding the Bruins and BU, as the team announced earlier that Joe Sacco will be their new Assistant Coach.
