Recchi: 2009-10 season with B's will "probably" be his last

Mark Recchi talked about his one-year, $1 million deal to return to the Boston Bruins for the 2009-10 season on Friday afternoon, and said that next season in Black and Gold will likely be his last NHL campaign. The 41-year-old has a pair of Stanley Cup rings -- one with the Pittsburgh Penguins and another with the Carolina Hurricanes -- but returned to Boston with the feeling that he may be able to go out of his playing career on top of the hockey world next season. Recchi has authored 545 goals in a Hall of Fame-level career with a handful of NHL teams, and said it was his "first priority" to return to Boston and wrap up some unfinished business with a dressing room full of hungry hockey players.
"I think this is probably going to be it," said Recchi, who finished with 16 points in 18 games after being traded to the B's on March 4 last season. "I want to go out and finish it off right by winning another championship and...

Red Sox hold workout for 24 draftees

Despite heavy rains throughout the day on Thursday, the Red Sox held a workout at Fenway Park for 24 players whom they drafted but had yet to sign, according to team amateur scouting director Jason McLeod. The workout provides the team with the opportunity both to further get to know and evaluate their draft choices on a personal level, serves as a selling point for the players by exposing them to Fenway and lets club officials see how the draft picks perform against other draft-worthy competition.

Draftees must pay their own way to Boston in order to take part in the event. The Sox have signed 15 of their 50 draft choices, so the turnout of 25 of the remaining 35 selections was considered impressive. This was the second year that the Sox have invited their draftees to come to Boston for the workout.
