The Bruins have re-signed Sean Kuraly to a three-year extension worth $3.825M ($1.275M AAV).
Kuraly had 14 points (6G / 8A) in 75 games with the Bruins last season. Boston has one of the deepest forward depth charts in the NHL, so Kuraly will be locked into a fourth line role again in 2019.

The Bruins have signed Chris Wagner to a two-year deal worth $1.25M ($625K AAV).
The Bruins have signed Joakim Nordstrom to a two-year deal worth $2M ($1.0M AAV).
The Bruins have signed John Moore to a five-year deal worth $13.75M ($2.75M AAV).
Moore had his best offensive seasons during his three years in New Jersey, averaging eight goals and 12 assists (20 points) per season. However, a 46.5 CF% and -1.1 relative Corsi in those seasons, suggests that the Bruins may regret a five-year term in a few seasons. Regardless, Moore is a reasonable third-pairing defenseman that increases the Bruins’ D-depth.
The Bruins have signed Jaroslav Halak to a two-year deal worth $5.5M ($2.75M AAV).
Halak had another tough season with the Islanders in 2018, going 20-26-6 with a 3.19 GAA and .908 SV% in 54 games. A change of scenery should help the 33-year-old netminder, who will serve as Tuukka Rask’s backup in 2019. Halak heads to Boston with a career 2.50 GAA and .916 SV% in 449 NHL games.
The Bruins signed Matt Grzelcyk to a two-year extension worth $2.8 million ($1.4M AAV) on Friday.
Grzelcyk, 24, became an integral part of the Bruins’ blueline in 2017-18 after spending the majority of his first pro season in the AHL. The 2012 third-round pick (No.85 overall) registered three goals and 12 assists (15 points) in 61 games with the Bruins. Grzelcyk will likely be a third-pairing defenseman on the left-side behind Torey Krug and Zdeno Chara next season.
Krug (ankle) will not play in Game 5 and could be out long-term.
