The Boston Bruins inked d-man David Warsofsky to a one-year, two-way contract Thursday. Warsofsky’s salary will total $600,000 if he plays at the NHL level in 2014-2015.
Warsofsky spent the majority of his time in Providence last season. The 24-year-old performed well there. He totaled 6 goals and 26 assists in 54 games.
The Boston University alum appeared in six NHL games for the Bruins as well last year. He tallied one goal and one assist in those games. His first career NHL goal came against the Ottawa Senators on December 28.
St. Louis originally drafted Warsofsky in the fourth round of the 2008 draft. He made his was to Boston via a trade that included Vladimir Sobotka back in 2010.
Warsofsky has shown steady progression at the AHL level and is considered to be NHL ready. Boston already has an abundance of young, talented blue-liners.
Only time will tell whether Warsofsky cracks the competitve group this season though, he’ll only benefit from playing on a nightly basis. It seems Providence is the ideal fit for him at this particular juncture.
