The Boston Bruins signed Bemidji State University goaltender Matt Dalton, who led the Beavers to the Frozen Four this season, to an entry-level contract Wednesday.

Dalton helped the 16th-seed Beavers earn the first Frozen Four berth in school history and become the lowest-seeded team to reach the national semifinals. In 31 games during the regular season, Dalton compiled a 19-11-1 record with a College Hockey America-best 2.19 GAA and a .921 save percentage.

The 22-year-old sophomore from Clinton, Ontario, spent the 2005-06 season with the Bozeman IceDogs of the North American Hockey League and the 2006-07 season with the Des Moines Buccaneers of the United States Hockey League before joining Bemidji State for 2007-08.
Quote of the Day

As a player, it's obviously a sad day, but to be on the ice with some of those guys and show our respect as both teams did around center ice, it's definitely a nice touch.
