BOSTON - The Boston Bruins have signed defenceman Matt Hunwick to a multiyear contract extension.

Hunwick scored six goals with 21 assists as a rookie last season. The 27 points placed him third among Bruins defencemen.

He played in one post-season game before having his spleen removed and missing the rest of the playoffs.

Hunwick, 24, was a seventh-round draft pick in 2004 and played four years of college hockey at Michigan.
