BOSTON - The Bruins signed veteran defenseman John Moore to a five-year contract on Sunday worth an average annual value of $2.75 million.
"My grandfather grew up, [was] born and raised in Dorchester, so my family is pretty familiar with the city," said Moore. "He's a life-long Bruins fan and that kind of translated to my dad. Growing up in Chicago, though, it's kind of tough to follow the Bruins, but I've always had a very deep appreciation for this franchise.
"You look from an outsider's perspective, the culture, guys like [Patrice] Bergeron and [Zdeno] Chara. It's just really exciting to join that."
