BOSTON - The Boston Bruins have signed defenceman Johnny Boychuk to a one-year contract.

Terms of the deal announced late Wednesday were not disclosed.

The 25-year-old Boychuk won the Eddie Shore Award as the American Hockey League's outstanding defenceman for the 2008-09 season. He led all AHL defencemen with 20 goals and 45 assists in 78 games.

The Edmonton native has a plus-21 rating and has recorded 273 shots on goal, the most by an A-H-L defenceman since 2002.

The six-foot-two, 225-pound Boychuk was originally drafted by the Colorado Avalanche in the second round of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.

He has played in five NHL games in his career.
