Boston Bruins Sign Veteran Nick Foligno to a 2-Year Deal

The Bruins have signed forward Nick Foligno to a two-year deal, with an AAV of $3.38M. It was first reported by Michael Russo, then made official by the team.

The 33-year-old broke into the league in 2007 with the Senators, spending five seasons with Ottawa before taking his talents to Columbus for nine seasons.

The 15-year veteran was dealt at the deadline this season by the Blue Jackets to the Maple Leafs. Through his 49 games (seven with Toronto), he racked up seven goals while tallying 13 points, posting a +/- of five.

Foligno, the longtime captain of CBJ, won the Mark Messier Leadership Award in 2017, as well as the Clancy Memorial Trophy. Clearly, the goal for the Bruins is forward depth.
