Bruins Sign Johnny Boychuk to a Two-Year Contract Extension
BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed defenseman Johnny Boychuk to a two-year contract extension. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

Last year marked Boychuk's first full-time NHL season and he registered 5 goals, 10 assists for 15 points and 43 penalty minutes in 51 games for Boston. Boychuk added 2-4=6 totals and 6 penalty minutes during the 13 playoff games he appeared in last postseason. Prior to last season, the 26-year-old Boychuk had skated in five regular season NHL games, splitting those contests between the Colorado Avalanche and the Bruins.

In total, Boychuk has appeared in 56 regular season NHL games while compiling 5-10=15 totals.

He was named the American Hockey League's top defenseman (Eddie Shore Award) in 2008-09 after leading all AHL defensemen in scoring with 20 goals and 45 assists in 78 games as a member of the P-Bruins.

The 6'2", 225-pound native of Edmonton, Alberta was selected by Colorado in the second round (62nd overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft. He was then traded by the Avalanche to the Bruins for Matt Hendricks on June 24, 2008.
