Bruins Sign Brad Marchand
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed forward Brad Marchand to a two-year contract. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal will not be disclosed. 

Chiarelli and Marchand will hold a conference call today at 4:45 p.m. ET to discuss the signing.

In his first full year in Boston, the 23-year-old rookie played in 77 games last season and notched 21-20=41 totals and 51 penalty minutes. He tied for third in the NHL with five shorthanded goals and finished the regular season at a +25, the second highest plus/minus rating among rookies (second to teammate Adam McQuaid’s +30)..

On April 4, 2010, Marchand won the “7th Player Award,” which is an annual award presented to the Bruin who went above and beyond the call of duty and exceed the expectations of Bruins fans during the regular season. The 7th Player Award is voted on by Bruins fans.

In the 2010-11 postseason, the 5’9, 183-pound native of Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia ranked second overall in playoff goal scoring (and 1st among rookies) with 11 goals in 25 games. He also added eight assists in the playoffs to go along with a rookie-best +12 rating. Marchand scored two goals in the Stanley Cup clinching victory over the Vancouver Canucks in Game 7 on June 15, 20011. 

Marchand has played a total of 97 regular season games with Boston, tallying 21-21=42 career NHL totals. He skated in a total of 113 games with the Providence Bruins (American Hockey League) from 2008-2010 and recorded 31-60=91 totals.

The Bruins selected Marchand in the third round (71st overall) in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
