Updating a previous report, the Boston Bruins gave David Backes a modified no movement clause in his new deal.

Backes will have a full NMC until May 31st, 2019, an eight-team NTC in 2019-20, and a 15-team NTC in 2020-21. The clauses are just an added safety net for Backes as he will have complete control on where he will play hockey until the end of the 2019 season.

Tim Schaller has signed with the Boston Bruins.

Schaller had a goal and two assists in 17 games with Buffalo in 2015-16. He also had 12 goals and 26 points in 37 AHL contests.
Jul 1 - 5:13 PM

Tyler Randell has inked a contract extension with the Boston Bruins.

Randell had six goals and 47 penalty minutes in 27 contests with Boston in 2015-16. That was the 25-year-old's first campaign that involved NHL action.
Jul 1 - 5:12 PM

The Boston Bruins have signed Riley Nash.

Nash had nine goals and 22 points in 64 games with Carolina in 2015-16. He's likely to serve as a bottom-six forward in Boston.
Jul 1 - 5:10 PM

Tommy Cross has agreed to terms with the Boston Bruins.

Cross had 23 points and 97 penalty minutes in 64 AHL contests in 2015-16. He also had an assist in three games with Boston.
Jul 1 - 5:06 PM

Anton Khudobin has signed a two-year, $2.4 million deal with the Boston Bruins.

Khudobin spent the 2015-16 season with Anaheim where he spent plenty of time in the minors as John Gibson and Frederik Andersen played most of the time. Khudobin was 3-3-0 in nine games with the Ducks with a 2.69 GAA and a .909 save percentage. He will be in the mix to back up Tuukka Rask and is likely the leader heading into training camp at this time.

The Boston Bruins have signed David Backes to a five-year/$30 million deal.

It was first reported that Backes signed a one year deal but it was apparently a five-year pact. He likely will end up on one of the top two lines and while he has been a diminishing fantasy asset the last couple of years, this could revitalize him and get him back to the 25 goal, 50 point mark. He is worth a late middle round pick in most pools.

The Boston Bruins have re-signed John-Michael Liles.

Liles played 17 games for Boston after being acquired at the deadline from Carolina. He is now a five-six defenseman at best for the Bruins but he can still score and could hit the 30 point mark if he plays regularly.

The Boston Bruins have signed David Backes to a one-year contract.

No terms have been announced but Backes will give the Bruins the same kind of play that Milan Lucic gave them a couple of seasons ago. He likely will end up on one of the top two lines and while he has been a diminishing fantasy asset the last couple of years, this could revitalize him and get him back to the 25 goal, 50 point mark. He is worth a late middle round pick in most pools.

Dennis Seidenberg was shocked by the Boston Bruins' decision to buy him out.

"(Bruins general manager) Donnie (Sweeney) called me (yesterday morning) and he said it was a tough call to make, but he had to buy me out, that they were going with the kids," Seidenberg said. "Told me I was a great guy and that was it." Seidenberg will become an unrestricted free agent at noon on July 1, but because the Bruins only started the buyout process on June 30 he missed out on the open interview period. Still, he should find teams interested in his services.

Torey Krug, speaking about his shoulder, said he feels great.

Krug underwent shoulder surgery back in May and he was initially projected to need about six months to recover. That would suggest that he won't be ready for the start of the regular season, though he did specify that his target is to participate in the opener.
Jun 30 - 5:27 PM

The Boston Bruins have signed Torey Krug to a four-year, $21 million contract.

Krug was about to become a restricted free agent with arbitration rights. He was coming off of a $3.4 million deal for 2015-16. After he recorded between 39 and 44 points in each of his last three seasons, this seems like a solid deal for Krug.

Dennis Seidenberg has been placed on waivers for the purpose of being bought out.

Seidenberg had a full no-trade clause and wanted to remain with the Bruins, but it seems they had other plans. The 34-year-old defenseman had a goal and 12 points in 61 games last season. He still might bounce back, so he could be a good value pickup for another club. From a cap perspective, Boston will save about $2.8 million in 2016-17 and $1.8 million in 2017-18, but they'll have a penalty of about $1.2 million in each of the two seasons that follow.

Torey Krug received a qualifying offer from Boston on Monday.

He is expected to get a boost in salary either through negotiation or arbitration from the $3.4 million he made in 2015-16. Boston also tendered qualifying offers to Colin Miller, Joe Morrow, Chris Casto, Brian Ferlin, and Alexander Khokhlachev.
Jun 28 - 8:55 AM

Boston didn't give Ben Sexton a qualifying offer so he can become an unrestricted free agent on Friday.

He was a seventh round of the 2009 draft and he hasn't played in the NHL yet. Sexton recorded four goals and one assist in 29 games with Providence of the AHL last year. There's a chance he still could be re-signed by the Bruins, though.
