Seguin Signs Three Year Deal, Will Play Wing

The Bruins made it official today, locking up Tyler Seguin for his first three NHL seasons at an annual cap hit of $3.75M (base salary is 900K, per CapGeek.com).

The signing was a formality, albeit a major one, to get Seguin in the fold. But it was relatively smooth sailing as expected.

During a late afternoon conference call today, GM Peter Chiarelli indicated that there will not be a presser to announce signing and that Seguin likely won't be made available to media until camp opens. He also stated that Seguin, provided he makes the team out of camp, will be playing the wing.

For a relatively routine summer day, it may turn out to be one of the biggest in Bruins' annals.
