Trent Whitfield possibly out for season

If true it looks like Bruins center Trent Whitfield may be out for next season due to a achilles tendon injury. Whitfield probably would have started the season in Providence (AHL) anyways and would be the first call-up if needed. So with this injury it will give a young player an opportunity to be the first call-up when needed.

Bruins center Trent Whitfield suffered an Achilles' tendon injury and could miss the season, according to a Comcast SportsNet report. Whitfield spent most of last season with AHL Providence, but played 16 games for the big club and four more in the playoffs.

Report: Bruins sign Tyler Seguin

It's been reported by numerous sites that the Bruins have signed rookie Tyler Seguin to a three-year, entry-level contract that will have an annual cap number of $3.75 million, the maximum a player drafted in 2010 can earn. Seguin will have a base salary of $900,000 plus $2.85 million in performance bonuses.

Now the Bruins can focus on somehow getting below the salary cap.
