The Boston Bruins and general manager Don Sweeney announced a contract signing on Tuesday.
While Sweeney continues to watch free agency pass him by, he's signed one of his own forwards to an extension.
The Bruins inked Karson Kuhlman to a two year contract with an AAV of $725k.
The first year of the deal is a two way deal and the second year is a one way deal.
