Even though the Boston Bruins are focused on Game 1 of their playoff series against the Toronto Maple Leafs, general manager Don Sweeney is still getting busy.
The Bruins and Sweeney announced on Tuesday that they've signed undrafted free agent Karson Kuhlman to a two year contract worth a total of $1.5million.
He'll join the AHL's Providence Bruins on an amateur tryout for the rest of this season and his NHL contract will kick in starting next year.
Kuhlman was the captain of the Frozen Four champion Minnesota Duluth team and put up 20 points in 44 games during the regular season.
The 22 year old already has a relationship with the B's having attended this past summer's Development Camp.
