BOSTON (AP) -The Boston Bruins signed goalie Hannu Toivonen to a one-year contract extension Thursday.
``We feel that Hannu has shown the dedication and the proper attitude the whole year,'' general manager Peter Chiarelli said. ``Hannu has the right head, the right heart and all of the tools to be a good NHL goalie for many years. We felt that it was imperative to get him signed at this point.''
Toivonen appeared in 18 games for Boston this season, his fourth in the organization, going 3-9-1 with a goals-against average of 4.23. He also appeared in 27 regular-season games for Providence of the AHL, going 13-13-1 with a 2.37 GAA.
