Mark Recchi has agreed to a one-year extension. The signing will be made official on Monday.
"Rex was a terrific player for us," said GM Peter Chiarelli. "He helped our group leadershipwise. He's a Hall of Famer-to-be. We're glad to have him back."
Recchi played in every game this season except for the regular-season finale when the Bruins had clinched a playoff spot.
