The Boston Bruins official website is reporting that the team has signed forward Rich Peverley to a three year contract extension. This contract would run through the 2014-2015 season. Peverley was a key player in the Bruins Stanley Cup win and notched 18 goals and 23 assists last season. From the team's official website:
The 29-year-old Peverley was acquired by the Bruins with Boris Valabik from the Atlanta Thrashers on February 18, 2011 for Mark Stuart and Blake Wheeler. In 23 games with the Bruins last season, he notched 4-3=7 totals in the regular season and went on to add 4-8=12 totals during the Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup championship run. For the full year split between Atlanta and Boston, Peverley skated in 82 regular season games with 18 goals and 23 assists for 41 points. He has not missed a game over the last two-plus seasons.
In three games this season, Peverley has scored two goals, which is the team high.
