Boston, MA -- Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club and highly touted Finnish goaltender Tuukka Rask have agreed to terms on a multi-year contract. Per team policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed. Rask will be traveling to the United States this weekend to join the Providence Bruins for the remainder of the AHL playoffs.

"We are very happy to come to terms with Tuukka after acquiring his rights last year," said Chiarelli. "This addition helps to shore up our goaltending situation for the future."

Rask, who is 20 years old and from Savonlinna, Finland, was originally drafted 21st overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs in the 2005 NHL Entry Draft. Boston acquired his rights on June 24, 2006 in a trade that sent goaltender Andrew Raycroft to Toronto.

Rask has played two seasons for Ilves Tampere in the top Finish league. Last season, Rask played 30 games and had a record of 12-8-7 with a goals-against average of 2.09 and a save percentage of .926.

In addition to his club play, Rask has also seen time with the Finnish junior and full national teams.
