Report: Bruins re-sign Recchi
The Boston Bruins have re-signed right winger Mark Recchi to a one-year deal, according to NHL.com correspondent James Murphy of NESN.com. The deal is for $1 million, the same as he earned last season with the Bruins, but also includes performance bonuses.

Recchi, 42, leads all active players with 1,571 games played, 922 assists and 1,485 points. He is second with 563 goals.

The Bruins acquired Recchi on March 4, 2009, and the 21-year veteran gave them 10 goals and 16 points in the final 18 games that season before posting 3 goals and 6 points in 11 Stanley Cup Playoff games. Recchi played 81 games for the Bruins in 2009-10 and had 18 goals and 43 points with a plus-4. He then had 6 goals and 10 points in 13 Stanley Cup Playoff games.

The Recchi signing, which will be formally announced Monday, is the third major signing or trade this week by Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli, who signed defenseman Johnny Boychuk to a two-year contract on Thursday.

On Tuesday, the Bruins traded defenseman Dennis Wideman to the Florida Panthers with the No. 15 pick in Friday's Entry Draft and a third-round pick in 2011 for right wing/center Nathan Horton and center Greg Campbell.

Recchi was very effective this past season when teamed with center Patrice Bergeron.
