Bruins Sign Hunwick to Multiyear Deal The lone Bruins player to file for salary arbitration has agreed to sign on with the Bruins as general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Monday that the club
has signed defenseman Matt Hunwick to a multiyear contract extension.

Per club policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed, but the Boston Globe is reporting that the deal is for two years. Hunwick filed for the arbitration on July 5 and because the two parties agreed to terms on Monday, they were able to avoid arbitration which is set for July 24.

The 5-foot-11, 190-pound Michigan native tallied six goals, 21 assists and a plus-15 in 53 games during his rookie season last year for the Black and Gold. His 27 points placed him third amongst Bruins defensemen, but Hunwick's presence wasn't just felt on the blue line as the 24-year-old played forward in six games last year for Claude Julien.

Hunwick's brilliant campgain was cut short after just one postseason game due to a spleen injury that forced him to miss the rest of the playoffs.
