BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Bruins announced the signings of Daniel Paille and Chris Bourque on Friday morning.

Paille, 28, was signed to a three-year deal that will keep him with the Bruins through the 2014-15 season and pay him $1.3 million per year.

Bourque, son of B’s legend Ray Bourque who was acquired via trade last week, signed a two-year deal with Boston. His deal is worth $550,000 at the NHL level and $200,000 at the AHL for the first year, while the second year is a one-way deal worth $550,000.

Paille joined the Bruins during the 2009-10 season, and he established himself as a key role player during the Bruins’ 2010-11 Stanley Cup-winning season. As one of the team’s best penalty killers and a valuable member of the fourth line, Paille’s posted 25-22-47 totals in 186 regular-season games with Boston.

Daniel Paille On The DA Show: 

“It feels amazing right now,” Paille told 98.5 The Sports Hub’s Damon Amendolara Friday night. “I wanted to stay here from the very beginning. The issue for me was more about years, and Peter felt strongly about me getting the three-years as well. For me, it was kind of like a no-brainer once I got that and I was truly happy about that.”

Bourque, 26, was traded to Boston last week in exchange for Zach Hamill. In just 33 NHL games, Bourque has one goal and three assists. Last year with AHL Hershey, he scored 27 goals with 66 assists in 73 games.
