Julien on Seguin: 'He's here to stay'

Bruins head coach Claude Julien finished his post-game press conference Thursday by announcing that general manager Peter Chiarelli has decided that rookie phenom Tyler Seguin will be staying with the NHL team and not be heading back to juniors. 

 

"He's here to stay," Julien announced. As a result, Seguin cannot be sent to Providence of the AHL and will remain part of the Bruins roster for his entire rookie season. Seguin scored his second NHL goal in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.

 

NHL teams have nine games to decide whether to send a rookie back to juniors while still holding his rights. The Bruins have liked what they've seen from Seguin so far, as the No. 2 overall pick in last June's draft has two goals and two assists in seven games.

Thank you Kessel: Seguin scores, B's win

On a night the Bruins honored hall of famer Milt Schmidt, the team looked like the "Big Bad Bruins" that Schmidt put together in the 1970s and came away with a hard-fought 2-0 win over the Toronto Maple Leafs at TD Garden. 

 

Patrice Bergeron scored his first of the season on a slap shot from the top of the left circle on the power play with just 41 seconds left in the first period. Tyler Seguin collected his second career goal and first on home ice when he beat Toronto's Jonas Gustavsson at 12:26 of the second period. 

 

Following the goal, the crowd - which booed each time former Bruin right wing Phil Kessel touched the puck - chanted "Thank you, Kessel." It was with the second pick acquired from Toronto in the Sept. 2009 trade the Bruins received the 2nd overall pick and selected Seguin in June's NHL Draft.

Wakefield: Clemente Award 'the ultimate'

Red Sox pitcher Tim Wakefield was named the 2010 recipient of the Roberto Clemente Award, honoring one player every year for excellence on and off the field. The 44-year-old's longstanding commitment to public service had earned him a nomination by the Red Sox on eight occasions. While the knuckleballer has 179 wins with the Red Sox (third most in franchise history) and 193 in his career, an All-Star berth and a pair of World Series rings, he said that the Clemente Award represented the pinnacle of his career.

 

“This is the ultimate. This is the highest [honor],” said Wakefield, who became familiar with Clemente's remarkable baseball and humanitarian accomplishments at the start of his career while in the Pirates organization. “I said earlier to some other people, this has nothing to do with baseball. I mean, it has nothing to do with your statistics or anything, it has to do with your character. You guys know me in...

Beltre, V. Martinez are Type-A free agents

The Elias Rankings, which is the formula used by Major League Baseball to determine if a free agent is a Type A (worth two draft picks in compensation) or Type B (one pick), were obtained by MLBTradeRumors.com on Thursday. Adrian Beltre and Victor Martinez were ranked as Type A free agents, while David Ortiz, Jason Varitek and Felipe Lopez were rated as Type B free agents. 

 

A team must offer a departing free agent arbitration -- and have the free agent reject the offer -- in order to receive compensation when the player signs with another team. A team that signs a Type A free agent will surrender its first-round pick to the team the player is leaving and also receive a supplemental pick (from MLB) in the "sandwich" round between the first and second rounds. A team that loses a Type B free agent only receives the supplemental selection.
