Bruins sign Jarome Iginla

It’s a classic case of if you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.

The Globe’s Fluto Shinzawa has confirmed that the Bruins have signed free agent forward Jarome Iginla, the player who chose the Pittsburgh Penguins over the Bruins at last season’s trade deadline. The Bruins then swept the Penguins out of the playoffs in the Eastern Conference finals.

Iginla, who was traded from the Calgary Flames to the Penguins in March, will receive a one-year, $6 million contract, according to TSN’s Darren Dreger.
