The Boston Bruins signed defenseman Derek Forbort to a three-year deal worth $9 million.

Forbort played for the Los Angeles Kings, Calgary Flames, and Winnipeg Jets during the last two seasons.

The 29-year-old registered 12 points in 56 games last year while averaging nearly 21 minutes of ice time per night.

He should be a fixture on the Bruins' penalty kill and provide physicality toward the bottom of the blue-line depth chart.
