NHL News: Mark Recchi Re-Signs With Boston Bruins


The 21-year-veteran is ready to give it another go.

Recchi scored 18 goals and added 25 assists last year for the Bruins, but also provided leadership to a young team.

Recchi officially signed a 1-year-deal worth $1 million plus performance bonuses.

“Rex was a terrific player for us and helped our group leadership-wise and he’s a Hall of Famer to be and he’s going to help some of the young kids,” Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli said. “We’re excited to have him back.”

Recchi said he was excited about the Bruins chances next year with the addition of Tyler Seguin with the second overall pick in the NHL Draft. Adding Seguin to an already strong group of centers gives the Bruins flexibility with their roster to play Seguin on the wing or make another move to get another winger.
