      The Bruins signed Jayson Megna to a one-year, two-way contract.

      Megna has been a fringe NHLer his entire career, often seeing playing time at both the AHL and NHL levels in a season. Last year he started the year in Colorado, failing to register a point in 14 NHL games. He was then placed on waivers and scooped up by the Ducks, where he tallied eight points (2G / 6A) in 41 games. With the Bruins, he'll likely open the season in Providence (AHL) but will be one of the first forwards recalled to play in the bottom-6.

      The Bruins signed Anthony Richard to a one-year, two-way contract.

      Richard has bounced around AHL teams in recent years, playing for Milwaukee, Chicago, Syracuse and Laval since 2020. This year he'll likely start the season and spend most of the year in Providence. He led the Laval Rocket in goals (30), assists (37) and points (67) last year.

      The Bruins signed Kevin Shattenkirk to a one-year contract worth $1.0 million.

      Shattenkirk spent the last three seasons in Anaheim, where he averaged five goals and 24 assists (29 points) per 82 games. The Bruins have a much deeper blueline than the Ducks did, so Shattenkirk will likely played a more sheltered third-pairing role, but brings some added offence to that role. He should also see some time on the second power play unit.

      The Bruins signed Milan Lucic to a one-year contract worth $1.0 million.

      Lucic played the first eight years of his career with the Bruins before spending the last eight years with the Kings, Oilers and Flames. The 6-foot-3, 240 lbs. winger returns to the team that drafted him as a bottom-6 option at this point in his career. In 2023, he had just 19 points (7G / 12A) in 77 games while averaging a career-low 11:18 TOI/gm. Still, he brings a physical presence to a fourth-line, having averaged 2.5 hits per game in his four seasons with the Flames.
