Bruins re-sign Andrew Raycroft to one-year deal
The Boston Bruins have re-signed goaltender Andrew Raycroft to a one-year contract, it was announced today by Bruins General Manager Mike O'Connell. Raycroft was a restricted free agent and, in keeping with club policy, terms of the contract were not announced.

"Andrew has emerged as one of the brightest young goaltenders in the NHL," said O'Connell. "That was established when he won the Calder Trophy in 2004 and finished among the league leaders overall in goals against average and save percentage. We expect that he will continue to build on that and remain among the core of our team for many years to come."

Raycroft, 25, enters his second full NHL season since the Bruins drafted him as their fourth pick, 135th overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. He played three seasons of junior hockey with Sudbury and Kingston of the Ontario Hockey League with a 58-58-15 record and 3.83 goals against average in 139 career junior games. He was named the OHL's Most Valuable Player in his final junior season in 1999-2000, becoming the first goaltender in 50 years to earn that honor, and was named the top goaltender in all of the Canadian major junior leagues that season as well. He split his first three professional seasons between Boston and their American Hockey League affiliate in Providence before breaking into the NHL on a full-time basis in 2003-04.

The 6'0", 184 lb. native of Belleville, Ontario had a breakout season in 2003-04, winning the Calder Trophy as the NHL's top rookie and earning a berth on the league's All-Rookie Team. He finished sixth overall in the league in goals against average (2.05) and fifth overall in save percentage (.926) and his 29 wins was the most by a Bruins rookie goaltender since Frank Brimsek's 33 in 1938-39. He recorded his first three NHL shutouts during the regular season and with his playoff-opening 3-0 shutout of Montreal on April 7, 2004 he became the first Bruins goaltender to record a shutout in his first post-season game since Cecil "Tiny" Thompson in 1929.

Raycroft played eleven games with Tappara Tampere in Finland in 2004-05 with a 4-5-2 record, 2.92 goals against average and one shutout.

His career NHL record stands at 35-27-10 with a 2.22 goals against average in 78 career NHL games.
