The Boston Bruins have added some forward depth with the signing of 35-year old forward Miroslav Satan.
Satan, who played with the Stanley Cup champion Pittsburgh Penguins last season, has signed a deal for the remainder of the season. The deal includes a no movement clause.
"He's a guy that has shown he is capable of scoring some goals and we hope he will give us some of that and also provide some competition," Bruins coach Claude Julien said. ''We were fortunate to get him and that he wanted to come to Boston and we are going to take advantage of that opportunity. Hopefully, he gives us that added scoring that we have been looking for."
It is a one-year deal for $700,000, meaning he will make a prorated portion for the remainder of the season.
In 65-games played with the Penguins last season, Satan recorded 17 goals and 19 assists.
Satan, who was recently named to the Slovakian Olympic men's hockey team, has recorded 354 goals and 367 assists in 1012 career NHL games.
