On Tuesday afternoon, word came down that the Bruins and center Sean Kuraly had agreed to a three-year deal.

Anton Blidh also signed a one-year two-way contract worth $650,000.
With Riley Nash gone to Columbus, Kuraly presumably will take on the third line center role, which he did at times when the team was down a center down the stretch.
Blidh only had one game with the big team last season, a year after filling in for Matt Beleskey for 19 games. Regardless of what happens during the 2018-19 season, he will remain an RFA for 2019-2020.
