Dougie Hamilton to stick with Bruins
|01.28.13 at 6:44 pm ET|
Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Monday night that defenseman Dougie Hamilton will remain with the Bruins all season and will not be returned to juniors.
Hamilton could have played five games in the NHL without a year being burned off his entry level deal, though Chiarelli had said prior to training camp that the team expected Hamilton to stick with the club all season.
The Bruins chose Hamilton with the ninth overall pick in the 2011 draft. Through four games in the NHL, Hamilton has three assists (tied for the team lead) and an even rating.
