The Bruins announced four signings Tuesday, inking 36-year-old forward Dominic Moore and depth defenseman Alex Grant to one-year contracts. The B’s also re-upped Chris Casto and Brian Ferlin, both of whom have spent their entire pro careers in the Boston organization, to one-year deals.
The Bruins will become Moore’s 10 team, tying him with Lee Stempniak as the most travelled active player in the league. A graduate of Harvard, Moore lived in Cambridge with his wife Katie, who died in 2013 of liver cancer. He was awarded the Masterton Trophy after returning to the NHL a season later with the Rangers.
Last season, Moore scored six goals and added nine assists for 15 points in 80 games for the Rangers. His best season came in 2010-11 with the Lightning, when he scored 18 goals and had 14 assists for 32 points in 77 games.
Moore’s contract, which carries a $900,000 cap hit, is the only one-way deal of the four, with Grant, Casto and Ferlin all receiving two-way deals. Ferlin’s deals worth $725,000 at the NHL level, Casto’s is worth $650,000 in the NHL and Grant’s is worth $600,000 in the NHL.
Grant, 27, played in five games for the Coyotes last season but spent most of the season with the Springfield Falcons of the AHL. The 6-foot-3, 209-pound defender had 42 points for the Falcons in 69 games.
An undrafted signing of the Bruins after two years at the University of Minnesota-Duluth, Casto has played three seasons for P-Bruins. Last season, he skated in 68 games, scoring seven goals and adding 16 assists for 23 points.
Limited last season by a concussion, the 24-year-old Ferlin played in just 23 games for Providence last season, scoring six goals with eight assists for 14 points. He played in seven NHL games in 2014-15, registering one assist.
Ferlin was drafted by the Bruins in the fourth round of the 2011 draft. The Cornell product is entering his third professional season.
