Bruins sign Seidenberg to four-year extension

The Boston Bruins signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year contract extension.

General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced the move on Saturday. Terms were not disclosed.

Seidenberg has played in 374 regular season games and has 18 goals, 98 assists in seven NHL seasons.

Seidenberg was traded from Florida to Boston with Matt Bartkowski at the trade deadline.

He played 17 games for the Bruins and had two goals and seven assists.

Seidenberg missed the final four games of the regular season and the playoffs after suffering a lacerated tendon in his forearm on April 3. He had surgery three days later to fix the injury.


NECBL: Mike McCann hit a leadoff triple and scored on Jim Schult’s base hit in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Sanford Mainers a 3-2 win over the Newport Gulls at Goodall Park.

Matt Marra’s two-run single in the third erased a 2-0 deficit for the Mainers.

Four Sanford relievers combined for 61/3 scoreless innings. Lucas Ellex got credit for the victory, allowing one hit and striking out three in two innings.
