Bruins sign David Warsofsky to 1-year deal

The Bruins announced Thursday that they have signed defenseman David Warsofsky to a one-year, two-way contract.

Warsofsky’€™s contract will pay him $600,000 should he play at the NHL [1] level. He has spent the vast majority of his Bruins career in Providence since being acquired in a trade with the Blues in 2010.

He did play in six games for the B’€™s last season, serving time on the power play and scoring a goal on Dec. 28 against the Senators.

The Marshfield native and Boston University product is a highly skilled puck-moving blueliner, which presents an organizational redundancy given the presence of Torey Krug on Boston’€™s back end. General manager Peter Chiarelli has said this offseason that he feels the team has nine NHL [2] defensemen, a group that includes Warsofsky, and that he may trade one or multiple blueliners.
