BOSTON (CBS) – Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced Thursday that the club has signed restricted free agent center David Krejci to a three-year contract extension through the 2014-15 season.

The Bruins first line center has four goals and nine assists this season in 20 games. He had a three-point performance in Wednesday night’s 6-3 win over the Maple Leafs with a goal and two assists.

Krejci was a star for the Bruins during their Stanley Cup Championship run, finishing as the NHL’s playoff scoring leader with 12 goals and 11 assists in 25 games, becoming the first Bruin to do so since Phil Esposito and Bobby Orr shared the postseason scoring title in 1972. Krejci’s 12 playoff goals included four game-winners and one hat trick.

Krejci was drafted in the second round (63rd overall) of the 2004 NHL draft. The center has racked up 62 goals and 165 assists for 227 points in 318 career games. The 25-year-old  has compiled 44 points in 52 postseason contests with 19 goals and 25 assists.

Chiarelli and Krejci will hold a press conference at 1 p.m. on Thursday.
