      Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced that the club has signed five players and agreed to terms with Former NMU Wildcat Justin Florek of Marquette on a one-year, two-way contract.

      Florek skated in six postseason games for Boston last season, where he notched his first NHL playoff goal against the Detroit Red Wings on April 20 in the B's 4-1 victory.

      Florek played in four games for Boston during the 2013-14 regular season, including his NHL debut against the Winnipeg Jets in Boston on January 4. The winger notched his first career NHL goal on January 9 against the Kings in Los Angeles and his first NHL assist on January 7 against the Ducks in Anaheim.

      The winger appeared in 69 games last season with Providence, registering 19 goals (fifth on the team) and 19 assists for 38 points with a plus-17 rating (second on the team). In total, the 23-year-old forward has skated in 148 AHL games with the Providence Bruins (2012-14), accruing 32 goals and 37 assists with a combined plus-32 rating. Florek has also skated in 16 postseason games with Providence in 2013 and 2014 where he registered two goals and two assists.

      One of the players the Bruins signed was Former Lake Superior State Laker Zach Trotman.

      Trotman made his NHL debut against the Senators in Ottawa on December 29 where he registered three shots on net in 16:41 of time of the ice.
