Bruins re-sign centre Petteri Nokelainen to multi-year contract

BOSTON - The Bruins re-signed forward Petteri Nokelainen to a multi-year contract on Wednesday.

The deal was announced one day after the Bruins signed winger Michael Ryder in hopes of strengthening their mediocre offence.

Nokelainen had career highs last season with 57 games played, seven goals, three assists and 10 points. The 22-year-old native of Finland had two assists in seven post-season games.

He began the season with Providence of the American Hockey League, before being recalled to Boston on Nov. 4.

Nokelainen was chosen 16th overall by the New York Islanders in the 2004 draft. He was acquired by the Bruins last September.
