Bruins sign Glen Murray and Shawn McEachern

The Boston Bruins have agreed to terms with right wings Glen Murray on a four-year contract and Shawn McEachern on a two-year contract, it was announced today by Bruins General Manager Mike O’Connell. Both players were unrestricted free agents, and in keeping with club policy, terms of the contract were not released.

Murray, 32, has played the last three NHL seasons with the Bruins, after returning to the team in October, 2001 that made him their first pick, 18th overall, in the 1991 NHL Entry Draft. Murray has scored 30-or-more goals in each of his last three NHL seasons, including a career-high of 44 in 2002-03 with the Bruins.

McEachern, 36, returns to Boston where he played during the 1995-96 season. The 5’11”, 200 lb. native of Waltham, MA was Pittsburgh’s sixth pick, 110th overall, in the 1987 NHL Entry Draft. He turned pro in 1992 following an outstanding three-year career at Boston University. He has played 13 NHL seasons with Pittsburgh, Los Angeles, Boston, Ottawa and Atlanta. He spent the 2004-05 season with Malmo in Sweden with 1-2=3 totals and 26 PIM in 16 games. In 883 career NHL games, he has 254 goals, 317 assists and 571 points with 484 penalty minutes.

    I for one cannot wait until hockey season starts up again. Even after the comments by Jeremy Roenick, I still love the game. It’ll certainly be interesting to watch the strategy unfold with the new rule changes as well. Plus after a year long hiatus, I’m sure the NHL marketing people will be eager to fill the seats at all 30 arenas. That should mean some cheap tickets and cool promotions. October 5 can’t come soon enough.
