Bruins sign D Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year contract extension

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins have signed defenceman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year contract extension reportedly worth US$13 million.

Boston acquired Seidenberg at this year's trade deadline from Florida in a deal that sent Craig Weller, Byron Bitz and a 2010 second round pick to the Panthers.

It's the 28-year-old German's fifth NHL team in seven seasons. He's played in 374 regular-season games, compiling 18 goals and 98 assists for 116 points.

Seidenberg suited up in 17 games for Boston this year and registered two goals and seven assists. He also led the NHL in blocked shots with 215.

He missed the final four games of the regular season and the entire playoffs after sustaining a lacerated tendon in his forearm during a game against the Maple Leafs on April 3. He had surgery three days later to repair the tendon and the recovery time was eight weeks.

Seidenberg also played for Germany at the Vancouver Olympics.
