Bitz’s new deal: 2 years, $687,500 average

Just got our first look of Byron Bitz’s new deal, signed yesterday, with the Bruins.

The big winger will earn $675,000 in the upcoming season and then get bumped to $700,000 in 2010-’11.

Overall, a very economical deal for the Bruins, who could see the big kid from Saskatoon provide second-line support these next two seasons.
