The Bruins are in the midst of a busy offseason.

Boston announced Monday it signed Samuel Asselin and Brendan Woods to two-year AHL contracts, while inking Chris Breen, Robert Lantosi, Joel Messner and Alexey Solovyev to one-year AHL deals.

Asselin highlights the group coming off an 86-point season with the Halifax Mooseheads of Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The 21-year-old led the QMJHL with 48 goals, tallying the highest season total for a Mooseheads player since 1994, per a Bruins press release.
