The Bruins announced Friday that they have signed forward Daniel Paille to a three-year contract and recently acquired forward Chris Bourque to a two-year deal.
Paille's contract is worth $1.3 million annually. Bourque's deal is a two-way contract in the first year, worth $550,000 if he's in the NHL and $200,000 at the AHL level. In the second year, it's a one-way contract worth $550,000.
Paille, 28, has played three seasons in Boston, recording 25 goals and 22 assists in 186 regular-season games, with four goals and five assists in 46 playoff games. He played in all 25 postseason games for the 2011 Stanley Cup champions, recording three goals and three assists.
Paille was a first-round pick (20th overall) of the Sabres in 2002. He was acquired from Buffalo on Oct. 29, 2009, for a 2010 third-round pick (Kevin Sunder).
Bourque, the son of Hall of Fame defenseman Ray Bourque, was acquired from the Capitals last week for forward Zach Hamill. Bourque, 26, has played in 33 NHL games with the Capitals and Penguins, recording a goal and three assists. He led the AHL in scoring last season with 93 points (27 goals, 66 assists) for the Hersey Bears.
A 5-foot-8, 190-pound left winger who spent a year at Boston University, Bourque was drafted by the Capitals in the second round (33rd overall) in 2004.
