St. Pierre’s contract

On Monday, F Martin St. Pierre signed a one-year, two-way deal worth $500,000. If St. Pierre, acquired last week from Chicago for Pascal Pelletier, plays in Providence in 2008-09, the center will earn $175,000.

WHAT IT MEANS: Although St. Pierre racked up a team-high 88 points for Rockford in 2007-08, Boston’s depth up the middle will most likely dictate that the 24-year-old will start the year in Providence. St. Pierre, perhaps understanding he will be in the AHL in 2008-09, pushed for the lofty minor-league payday, where he’ll play a large part in grooming Providence’s rookie wingers.
