BOSTON (CBS) — The Boston Bruins continued building next season’s defense from within on Wednesday, reportedly agreeing to deals with restricted free agent defensemen Colin Miller and Joe Morrow.
General Fanager tweeted late Wednesday that Miller’s deal is for two years and $2 million total, then tweeted that Morrow had signed a one-year, $800,000 deal. Miller will be paid $900,000 in year one and $1.1 million in year two.

Both deals are reportedly one-way contracts, which means that Miller and Morrow’s salaries would be the same regardless of whether they played in the NHL or AHL. Two-way contracts are more common for players expected to spend more time in the minor leagues.MORE NEWS: Boston Police Cruiser, Sedan Collide In Early Morning Crash In Roxbury
