Jordan Sigalet and Jonathan Girard sign one-year contracts
BOSTON—The Boston Bruins have agreed to terms with goaltender Jordan Sigalet on a one-year contract, it was announced Wednesday by Bruins General Manager Mike O'Connell. O'Connell also announced that defenseman Jonathan Girard has signed his one-year qualifying offer. In keeping with club policy, terms of the contracts were not released.

"Both of these players remain top prospects and have shown tremendous character in overcoming their physical setbacks," said O'Connell. "Jordan was one of the top college players in the country last year at any position, as evidenced by his nomination for the Hobey Baker Award, while playing the entire season following his Multiple Sclerosis diagnosis. Jonathan has worked extremely hard to rehabilitate from the serious injuries he suffered in his car accident two summers ago. We look forward to seeing both players at training camp."

Sigalet, 24, was Boston's sixth pick (seventh round), 209th overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft. He has played four seasons of college hockey at Bowling Green State University with a 34-46-16 record and 2.98 goals against average with four shutouts in 102 career college games and he completed his college career ranked second all-time among Bowling Green goaltenders in goals against average. He was named to the CCHA's First All-Star Team in 2003-04 and to the Second Team in 2004-05.

The 6'1", 180 lb. native of New Westminster, British Columbia was the first-ever Bowling Green goaltender to be named a captain of the team when he attained that honor in 2004-05 and he was named a finalist for the Hobey Baker Award as the nation's top college hockey player last season as well. The netminder was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in March, 2004 and made the public announcement in December, 2004. He serves as an ambassador for MS Lifelines, which raises awareness about the disease. The Bruins drafted his brother Jonathan, a defenseman at Bowling Green, in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

Girard, 25, was Boston's first pick (second round), 48th overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He played four seasons of junior hockey in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with Laval, Acadie-Bathurst and Moncton with 50 goals and 153 points for 203 points and 153 penalty minutes in 179 career junior games. He split his first two pro seasons between Boston and his junior team and his next two between Boston and their AHL affiliate in Providence before playing his first full NHL season with the Bruins in 2003-04 (6-16=22 totals and 21 penalty minutes in 73 games).

The 5'11", 201 lb. native of Rawdon, Quebec has missed the last two seasons rehabilitating from injuries suffered in a July 24, 2003 car accident in Quebec.
