Jiri Slegr signs a one-year deal with the Bruins
BOSTON—The Boston Bruins have agreed to terms with defenseman Jiri Slegr on a one-year contract, it was announced Friday by Bruins General Manager Mike O'Connell. Slegr was an unrestricted free agent and, in keeping with club policy, terms of the contract were not released.

"Jiri [Slegr] came in here and did such a tremendous job for us two years ago," said O'Connell. "Really he can play all different roles defensively. We thought he was an important piece to bring in here."

Slegr, 34, returns to the Boston, where he was acquired from Vancouver for a conditional draft pick on January 17, 2004. He had begun the 2003-04 season with the Canucks with 2-5=7 totals and eight penalty minutes in 16 games prior to the trade and finished the season with 4-15=19 totals and 27 PIM in 36 Bruins games, including five multiple-point efforts.

He played the 2004-05 season with HC Chemopetrol Litvinov in his native Czech Republic with 6-23=29 totals and 135 PIM in 46 Czech League games. He also represented the Czech Republic in both the 2004 World Cup and on the Gold medal winning 2005 World Championships squad.

The 6'1", 210 lb. native of Jihlava, Czech Republic was Vancouver’s third pick (second round), 23rd overall, in the 1990 NHL Entry Draft. Following five seasons in the Czech Elite League, he came to North American for the 1992-93 season, and has played ten NHL seasons for six teams (Vancouver, Edmonton, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Detroit and Boston).

He scored a career-high 11 goals with Pittsburgh in 1999-2000 and has twice topped the 30-point mark, including a career-high 38 points with Vancouver in 1993-94. He won a Stanley Cup championship with Detroit in 2001-02.
