The Bruins announced Friday that they have signed forward Brian Ferlin to an entry-level contract.
Ferlin, 21, leaves Cornell after playing three seasons of college hockey. In 32 games this season, Ferlin had a team-leading 13 goals and 27 points. The Bruins drafted Ferlin, a Jacksonville native, in the fourth round of the 2011 draft.
The team also sent center Ryan Spooner to Providence Friday. Spooner played Thursday against the Jets in place of Patrice Bergeron , who missed the game as the Bruins rested three of their regulars in Bergeron, Zdeno Chara  and Chris Kelly .
