Bruins sign D Bartkowski to two-way contract

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins have re-signed defenseman Matt Bartkowski to a two-way contract.

The deal is worth $660,000 at the NHL level and $62,500 at the AHL level, the club said Thursday.

Bartkowski began last season with Boston. He appeared in three games before being sent to Providence of the AHL where he had three goals, 19 assists and 38 penalty minutes in 50 games.

Quote of the Day

That's a really tough thing to play through; when you finally are thrown out there, the game is fast, intense, every single play matters, you've got to find a way to play through that and make smart plays. So it's a huge testament to [Vermette] and some other individuals in our locker room that are putting their own ego, their own wants and needs aside, and are ready for those opportunities when they do come.
