Bruins sign Campbell, three other players
Gregory Campbell was among four players to sign contracts during a busy day for the Boston Bruins on Thursday.
The Boston Bruins signed restricted free agent Gregory Campbell, acquired from the Florida Panthers at this year's NHL Entry Draft, to a two-year contract on Thursday.

Boston also announced the signings of defenseman Adam McQuaid to a two-year contract, defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk to a one-year deal and forward Jeff LoVecchio to a one-year deal.

The 26-year-old Campbell, who came over along with fellow forward Nathan Horton in exchange for defenseman Dennis Wideman and a first-round draft pick, had 2 goals and 17 points in 60 games for Florida this past season. A third-round pick by the Panthers in 2002, he sports career totals of 29 goals and 85 points in 363 games.

McQuaid, 23, is a former second-round pick of the Blue Jackets in 2005 who emerged as a valuable member of the Bruins' blue line late in the season and into the playoffs. He registered 1 goal and 21 penalty minutes in 19 regular-season games and was scoreless in nine postseason contests. In 32 games for Providence of the AHL, he totaled 3 goals and 10 points.

Bodnarchuk, 22, is a fifth-round pick of the Bruins in 2006 who made his NHL debut on April 3 against the Maple Leafs and played in five regular-season games, going scoreless. He played 70 games for Providence, recording 5 goals and 15 points.

LoVecchio, 24, returned from a serious concussion that cost him the entire 2008-09 season to play in 65 games for Providence, putting up 15 goals and 24 points. He originally signed with the team as an undrafted free agent in 2008 after playing collegiately at Western Michigan University.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
