Today it was announced that the Bruins have signed forward Matt Fraser to a 1-year 2-way contract ($625,000 at the NHL level) and defenseman Steve Eminger to an AHL contract.

Fraser appeared in 14 games for Boston last season, tallying two goals, both of which came on the road (1/9 at LAK, 12/23 at NSH). In his first regular season with Providence, Fraser finished the 2013-14 campaign with 20 goals (tied for third on the team) and 10 assists for 30 points in 44 appearances.


Eminger joins the Bruins organization after spending half of last season with CSKA Moscow (KHL, 0-2=2 totals in 25 games) and the Norfolk Admirals (AHL, 3-4=7 totals in 33 games). Eminger is a veteran of 488 NHL games playing with the Washington Capitals from 2002-08 (212 games), the Tampa Bay Lightning (50 games), Philadelphia Flyers (12 games) and Florida Panthers (nine games) in 2008-09, the Anaheim Ducks in 2009-10 (63 games) and the New York Rangers from 2010-2013 (142 games).

In total the 30-year-old blueliner from Woodbridge, ON has registered 19 goals and 80 assists for 99 points with 359 penalty minutes at the National Hockey League level. Eminger was drafted by the Washington Capitals in the first round (12th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
