Zboril Signs Entry Level Contract

Zboril, selected 13th overall by the Bruins in this year’s NHL Draft, recorded 13 goals and 20 assists in 44 regular season games with Saint John last season. He added one goal and two assists in five post-season matches.

Although the Bruins seem to be sort of rebuilding, the 18-year-old Zboril will likely return for another season of junior.

In other news, former Dogs defenseman Eric Gelinas has re-signed with the New Jersey Devils, inking a two-year contract worth $3.15 million total, according to


Gelinas, 24, will make $1.5 million in 2015-16 and $1.65 million in 2016-17 for a salary cap hit of $1.575 million per season. After the one-way deal expires, Gelinas would become a restricted free agent again and be one year away from being eligible to become an unrestricted free agent.    

The deal means Gelinas and the Devils will avoid going to arbitration.

The 24-year-old recorded six goals and 13 assists in 61 games with the Devils last season. 

Gelinas spent the second half of the 2010-11 season with Saint John, helping the team win the 2011 Memorial Cup.

Meanwhile, Mike Hoffman and the Ottawa Senators are scheduled to head to arbitration on July 30.
