John-Michael Liles is thrilled that he'll be back in Boston next season.
Liles re-signed with the Bruins after the start of free agency and admitted he wanted to return all along. "I’m not going to tell you it was a really long list of teams, but there were some other teams and some comparable offers," said Liles. "I just really enjoyed playing here for those 17 games and just really enjoyed playing in this city. I thought the fans were fantastic, I thought the group in the room was great. . . . My family absolutely loved being here in the city, so that was a big part of it." The Bruins acquired Liles from Carolina and he proved to be a decent fit on their blue line at the end of last season. He'll likely put up close to 20 points in 2016-17. Sep 10 - 9:57 AM
