Ryan Button has agreed to terms with the Boston Bruins on a three-year, entry-level contract.

He can return to junior next season as an overage player, but starting out in the AHL with Providence is probably the more likely scenario for him in 2011-12. Button appeared in seven games with Boston's minor-league affiliate to finish the year. The Bruins chose him with a third-round pick in the 2009 draft.

Ryan Button has impressed the Boston brass at the team's development camp.

The Bruins selected Button in third round of the 2009 draft and even though he is probably a few years away from stepping into the NHL, he has displayed plenty of promise. "He looks good - mobile, competitive, moves the puck," said general manager Peter Chiarelli. "We think we might have gotten a little lucky with him." Mobile, puck-handling defensemen are extremely valuable in league right now, so Boston will likely keep a keen eye on Button's development.

The Boston Bruins were happy to get defenseman Ryan Button in the third round on Saturday.

GM Peter Chiarelli compared Button to Marc-Edouard Vlasic of the Sharks although Button thought he played like the Penguins Kris Letang. "He's a really smooth, puck-moving defenseman," chief scout Wayne Smith said. "He sees the ice well, transitions well from offense to defense, he's capable of adding some offense as well. He's a good size kid. He's not a real aggressive guy, but he finishes his checks hard. He's certainly first on pucks, so he was a player we were really interested in." Button is still at least few years away from making the Bruins as he will return to Prince Albert of the WHL this season and will need at least one year in the AHL to hone his skills.
