BOSTON (AP) — Boston University defenseman David Warsofsky has left school early to sign with the Boston Bruins.

The Providence Journal reports Warsofsky joined the team for practice Thursday morning.

Before joining BU, Warsofsky was captain of the 2007-08 US National under-18 team and won a bronze medal in the U-18 World Championship. He also won a gold medal as part of the US Team at the World Junior Championship in 2010, becoming the  only BU player ever to win gold at the event.

Over his three-year career as a Terrier, the defenseman scored 17 goals and added 34 assists.

The Bruins acquired Warsofsky, a Mansfield native, last summer from St. Louis for Vladimir Sobotka.

    Proud of another Marshfielder in the NHL, but sad that he is foregoing a certain Captaincy for what looked like a stronger, more mature Terriers team, another Beanpot, HE Title, NCAA bid and who knows what(Hobey?). Many thought he needed to redeem himself for what was not the year expected this year. Best of luck to him.
