Dennis Seidenberg Thrilled to Be Playing in Boston After falling to a wrist injury toward the end of last season, Bruins defenseman Dennis Seidenberg said it wasn't the rehab that bothered him, it was missing the playoffs.

Seidenberg's lacerated tendon was just healing up as the Bruins' playoff run ended back in May. It was tough on the blueliner, who wanted to be out on the ice helping his teammates, but he said he's completely healed now and he's ready for the upcoming season.

"The rehab thing wasn't tough at all," Seidenberg told NESN's Naoko Funayama. "But I really enjoyed the summer and I'm ready to go again."

Bolstered by a four-year, $13 million contract, Seidenberg is thrilled to be in a solid position on the Bruins' defense.

"Knowing that I'm going to be here for four years is exciting, and I'm really happy," Seidenberg said.
