B\'s Sign Seidenberg to Extension
BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year contract extension. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

The 28-year-old Seidenberg is a veteran of 374 regular season NHL games and has compiled 18 goals, 98 assists and 116 points in his seven NHL seasons. This season marked Seidenberg’s first with the Bruins, as he was traded from Florida to Boston with Matt Bartkowski at this year’s trade deadline (March 3, 2010), for Craig Weller, Byron Bitz and a 2010 second round pick. Boston is the fifth NHL team Seidenberg has suited up for, along with Philadelphia, Phoenix, Carolina and Florida. He has appeared in 19 postseason games during his career with Philadelphia and Carolina and registered 1-5=6 totals in those playoff contests.

He skated in 17 games this year with the Black & Gold and tallied 2 goals, 7 assists and 9 points. For the season with Boston and Florida, Seidenberg set career highs in games played (79), assists (28) and points (32), in addition to potting four goals. He also led the NHL in blocked shots with 215.

Seidenberg missed the final four games of the regular season and the entire playoffs after sustaining a lacerated tendon in his forearm during the Bruins/Maple Leafs game on April 3. He had surgery to repair the tendon on April 6 and the recovery time was eight weeks.

Seidenberg played for Team Germany at the 2010 Olympic Games in Vancouver and has been a teammate of Marco Sturm on the German squad in four international tournaments (2001 Worlds, 2002 Olympics, 2008 Worlds, 2010 Olympics).

The 6’1”, 210-pound native of Schwenningen, Germany was selected by the Philadelphia Flyers in the sixth round (172nd overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.
