Report: Bruins re-sign Kelly, Campbell
The Boston Bruins reportedly have locked up two key pieces to their puzzle long-term.

The Boston Bruins reportedly have locked up two key pieces to their puzzle long-term.

TSN is reporting the Bruins agreed to terms Monday with forwards Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell. Kelly's deal reportedly is for four years for a total of $12 million, while Campbell signed a three-year deal worth $4.8 million.

Kelly, 31, scored 20 goals and added 19 assists for 39 points in 82 games in 2011-12, his first full season in Boston. He was acquired from the Ottawa Senators in February 2011.

Campbell, 28, went 8-8-16 in 78 games last season. He was acquired from the Florida Panthers in June 2010.

Both Kelly and Campbell would have become unrestricted free agents on July 1.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
