The Bruins announced Wednesday that they have signed restricted free agent Brad Marchand [1] to a two-year contract.

Renaud P. Lavoie of RDS in Canada was the first to report the deal, noting it is for $5 million and a $2.5 million cap hit.

Last season, Marchand made $821,667. He had 21 goals and 20 assists in the regular season as a rookie, and his 11 goals in the playoffs put him behind only teammate David Krejci [2] for tops amongst all skaters.

Had he not signed this week, it was possible Marchand may have missed part of training camp.
