Matt Hunwick has signed a two-year extension with the Bruins, thus avoiding arbitration. We’ll track down some details of the contract.
Hunwick was a restricted free agent. In 2008-09, Hunwick scored six goals and 21 assists in 53 games. He made one playoff appearance against Montreal before suffering a ruptured spleen.
“My impression is that they liked everything they saw and they are not putting any limitations on him,” said Mark Witkin, one of Hunwick’s agents. “They are probably feeling there isn’t anything he can’t do. He’s at the time and state in his career where he’s going to keep getting better.”
UPDATE: Hunwick’s deal is worth $2.9 million, giving him a $1.45 million annual cap hit. Hunwick will earn $1.35 million in 2009-10, and $1.55 million in 2010-11.
