BOSTON (CBS) – As Boston Bruins fans say goodbye to Michael Ryder, say hello to Benoit Pouliot.

TSN in Canada is reporting the Bruins have signed the free agent winger to a one year, $1.1 million deal.

He played 79 games for the Montreal Canadiens in 2010-11, scoring 13 goals to go with 17 assists.

He was drafted fourth overall by the Minnesota Wild in 2005 but scored only nine goals in four years. He was traded to the Canadiens during the 2009-10 season, where he scored 15 goals in 39 games.

Pouliot was not extended a qualifying offer from the Canadiens earlier in the week. He did not play in four of the seven games in the Bruins-Canadiens first round playoff series.

Pouliot has 35 goals and 37 assists over 183 games in his NHL career.
