Re-Signed: Petteri Nokelainen
The Boston Bruins have locked up the services of center Petteri Nokelainen for the next 2 years as the two sides agreed to a contract that will pay him a combined $1.7 million over the next couple of seasons. Originally drafted in the 1st Round, 16th overall of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Nokelainen finished his first full season in the NHL with the Bruins scoring 10 points (7 goals, 3 assists) on 57 games. Nokelainen has an impressive 17.5 scoring percentage. Nokelainen could prove to be a solid young forward for Boston seeing as he just turned 22 in January.
