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  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  defensemen, a group that includes Warsofsky, and that he may trade one or multiple blueliners.
