Bruins sign Campbell, three others
By: DJ Bean

The Bruins announced on Thursday that they have signed center Gregory Campbell, who had filed for arbitration and had a hearing scheduled in Toronto for next Thursday, to a two-year contract. Campbell was acquired by the Bruins in the Nathan Horton trade with the Panthers last month. He totaled just 17 points in 60 games last season but scored 13 goals a season prior and is a presence on the penalty kill.

 

Defenseman Adam McQuaid was also given a two-year deal while defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk and forward Jeff LoVecchio were each given one-year pacts. The 23-year-old McQuaid played in 19 contest for the Bruins last season, scoring his first goal on February 7 against the Canadiens. He added 10 points in 32 games for the Providence Bruins. Bodnarchuk played in five games last season with the Bruins but did not show up on the scoring sheet, while LoVecchio, considered a strong defensive forward, picked up 24 points last season for Providence...

Lineups: Beltre out for Red Sox
By: DJ Bean

Though the Red Sox appear to be inching closer to clearing up some of their injury woes with rehab appearances set for Clay Buchholz, Manny Delcarmen and Josh Beckett, they begin their first post-All-Star break with one of their key contributors on the bench. Third baseman Adrian Beltre, who left Sunday's game against the Blue Jays in the fifth inning with a hamstring strain, is not in the lineup as the Red Sox take on the Rangers Thursday at Fenway Park. Beltre had just one at-bat in the All-Star game, striking out on three pitches against Dodgers closer Jonathan Broxton in the bottom of the ninth inning.

BC legend Goodreault dead at 92

Gene Goodreault, an All-America end in 1940 and a member of Boston College's 1941 Sugar Bowl championship team, died Tuesday in Orinda, Calif., at the age of 92, according to a statement on the school's website.

 

Goodreault, a product of Haverhill, was chosen 15th overall in the 1941 NFL draft by the Detroit Lions but he instead served in the Navy in World War II. He returned to Haverhill after his military service and founded a wool brokerage company there. He remained in Haverhill until six years ago, when he relocated to California.

 

A member of the inaugural class in the BC's Varsity Club Hall of Fame in 1970, Goodreault was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 1982. His jersey was retired in 2001 during a ceremony at BC marking the 60th anniversary of the Sugar Bowl title.

 

Goodreault was the winner of the first Bulger Lowe Award in 1939 as the top player in New England.

Wilfork on D&H: Mankins 'the real deal'

Patriots defensive lineman Vince Wilfork made an appearance on the Dale & Holley show Thursday, calling in from his home in Florida, where he's been working out to get ready for preseason camp. "I'm going to be in tip-top shape come July 28, when I've got to report and get to work," he said. "I'm on schedule, I'm on track, I'm looking good, I feel good."

 

Talking about his contract negotiations leading up to his five-year, $40 million deal in early March, Wilfork said it was tough at times, but he always remained confident things would work out. "We kept a level head," he said. "We knew it was going to clear up."

 

Asked about Logan Mankins' contract dispute with the team, Wilfork said he respects the way the Patriots run their business, making sure the team is competitive every year. "You have to look at it from both sides," he said. "That's how I looked at it. I...

Celtics make Pierce signing official

The Celtics announced Thursday that they re-signed captain Paul Pierce. No details were released, but previous reports have indicated the contract is worth $61 million over four years.

 

"Paul has been a cornerstone of our franchise for the last decade and we could not be more pleased that he is returning to the team," Celtics president of basketball operations Danny Ainge said in a statement.

"I am very excited to be back in Boston," Pierce said in the team's statement. "I have always said that I would love to retire as a Celtic, and re-signing here will allow me to do that. I would like to thank Danny, Doc [Rivers], the ownership group and the rest...
