The Boston Bruins inked a deal with a member of their 2013 draft class Thursday, signing Slovakian forward Peter Cehlarik to a three-year entry-level contract.
Cehlarik spent parts of the last four seasons with Lulea HF of the Swedish Hockey League, most recently tallying 11 goals and nine assists in 46 games in 2015-16. He also suited up for his native Slovakia in the 2016 IIHF World Championship, skating in five games and scoring one goal.
The Bruins drafted Cehlarik in the third round (90th overall) of the 2013 NHL Draft. He’s the third 2013 draftee to sign with Boston, following defenseman Linus Arnesson (second round, 60th overall) and forward Anton Blidh (sixth round, 180th overall).
Cehlarik will be 21 when the 2016-17 season begins.
