Zach Trotman said it was a "dream come true" for him to get a one-way contract with the Bruins.

More specifically, Trotman inked a two-year contract that's two-ways in 2014-15 and one-way in 2015-16. Even still, the fact that the Bruins would structure his deal like that suggests that they feel Trotman isn't far off from being a regular in the NHL. It helps that AHL Providence coach Bruce Cassidy has also singled out Trotman and Joe Morrow as "clearly the next guys in line" for the Boston Bruins. Trotman played in two games with Boston in 2013-14 and also had 24 points in 53 AHL contests.

Milan Lucic won't apologize for whatever he said in the handshake line during the conclusion of the Montreal-Boston series that bothered Dale Weise.

Lucic did add that in retrospect he feels he could have handled the situation better. "But more than saying what I said to the players, I was upset with losing," Lucic said. "I was upset with losing to them. We had such a great team that had won the Presidents' Trophy and that being the end and losing the way that we did, I think it all just accumulated to me losing my cool in the handshake." Lucic and the Bruins will get their first rematch against the Canadiens on Oct. 16.

Justin Florek has inked a one-year, two-way contract extension with Boston.

Florek will come with a $600,000 annual cap hit if he plays in the NHL. He had 19 goals and 38 points in 69 AHL games in 2013-14. He also ended up playing in six playoff contests with Boston and scored a goal.

Craig Cunningham has inked a one-year, two-way deal with Boston.

Cunningham can earn $600,000 annually at the NHL level or $85,000 if he spends the 2014-15 campaign in the minors. He had 47 points and 40 penalty minutes in 75 AHL games last season.

Tyler Randell has signed a one-year, two-way contract with Boston.

Randell had 11 points and 93 penalty minutes in 43 AHL games in 2013-14. His deal comes with a $575,000 annual cap hit if he plays in the NHL.

Tommy Cross signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Boston Bruins.

Zach Trotman has agreed to a two-year contract with the Boston Bruins.

Trotman will come with a $625,000 annual cap hit at the NHL level. His deal is two-ways in 2014-15, but it's just one way for the second season. He had eight goals and 24 points in 53 AHL games last season.

Rob O'Gara is on the right path to eventually break into the NHL.

O'Gara has spent the last two seasons at Yale University after being selected by the Boston Bruins in the fifth round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft. The 6-foot-4 blueliner had 11 points and 30 penalty minutes in 33 NCAA games last season. "If you've watched him play over the course of his two seasons at Yale," said Bruins assistant GM Don Sweeney, "and realize how much he plays and the situations he plays in — and part of the national championship team as a freshman — I think you quickly understand that he has a lot of good tools, a lot of things that we are very, very excited about as a National Hockey League defenseman."
Jul 17 - 9:56 AM

Jordan Caron has agreed to a one-year, $600,000 contract with the Boston Bruins.

The Bruins investigated the possibility of trading Caron, not because he requested a move, but because they were trying to be fair to him and felt he might have a better opportunity to play regularly elsewhere. Nothing materialized from that, but he still might end up being dealt before the summer's over. Caron had three points and 36 penalty minutes in 35 games last season.

David Pastrnak is looking forward to meeting his idol, David Krejci.

"I know…I just hope I'm going to stay alive after [meeting Krejci], if it's going to happen," said Pastrnak. "I always said if I get this chance, I would do my best and show to the Bruins that they made the right decision and I would really enjoy it. Until this moment happened now, I've been always just dreaming about it. But now it came true, but my dreaming isn't done. I have to still do more things for my dad, and for my family. I still have more that I have to do, and I just have to keep working. That can be a good beginning." Pastrnak was taken by Boston with the 25th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. The Bruins have already signed him to an entry-level contract.

David Pastrnak has signed an entry-level contract with the Boston Bruins.

Pastrnak was taken with the 25th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft. He's not expected to make the Bruins' opening game roster, but he does have the potential to develop into a top-six forward.

The Boston Bruins told Malcolm Subban he could skip the Bruins' development camp if he wanted, but he came anyways.

"I was impressed with that," Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said, referring to Subban. "He had a slow start, but I thought he had a real strong finish. He really came in and he has stuff to work on still, but -- if you look at his stats and you look at his start -- you can really appreciate how well he played. So he's on the right track." Subban had a 2.31 GAA and .920 save percentage in 33 games as an AHL rookie last season. He's expected to go back to the minors for the start of the 2014-15 campaign, but he might make his NHL debut before the season's over if Tuukka Rask or Niklas Svedberg suffer an injury.
Jul 14 - 10:47 PM

Matt Bartkowski has agreed to a one-year, $1.25 million contract with the Boston Bruins.

Bartkowski had an arbitration hearing scheduled for July 30. The 26-year-old defenseman registered 18 assists in 64 games last season.

David Pastrnak, the 25th overall pick in the 2014 NHL entry draft, impressed Bruins insider Joe Haggerty of CSNNE.com at the team's recent development camp.

"After watching B’s first-rounder David Pastrnak for two days, he looks like the real deal to me," Haggerty wrote. "His soft hands and crazy handle on the puck stand out from the rest of the group and he has the vision to put both of those skills to good use. At the end of the second session, Pastrnak cut through the middle in traffic to get to the net with the puck on his stick, and completely lost his defender with a toe drag move that was just downright filthy. Those are the kinds of puck skills and razzle dazzle that have made him the unmitigated star of the first two days of camp, and get you wondering whether he might just find himself in the mix for an NHL spot given the team’s need for a right-handed shot with high-end offensive ability. It’s an outside shot, to be sure, but he’s looked that good at development, and appears to be a hit for the B’s at the end of the first round."

The Boston Bruins aren't likely to sign any of the remaining right wingers on the unrestricted free agent market.

The Bruins will probably need almost all of their spare cap space to sign their restricted free agents. That being said, they might still try to add someone via the trade market and shed some salary while they're at it. In an ideal world, they would like to at least partially fill the void left by Jarome Iginla's departure.
