BOSTON (AP) – Defenseman Bobby Allen and forward Byron Bitz have agreed to contract terms with the Boston Bruins, the team said Friday.

The Bruins did not disclose terms of the contracts with Allen, who appeared in 31 games for Boston last season, and Bitz, who comes to the Bruins after completing his senior year of college hockey for Cornell University.

Allen split time last season between the Providence and Boston Bruins. With Boston, Allen recorded three assists and 10 penalty minutes. The 29-year-old Hull, Mass. native played hockey at Boston College, and was originally drafted by the Bruins in the 1998 NHL entry draft.

Bitz was the Bruins’ fourth pick in the 2003 draft. The native of Corman Park, Saskatchewan finished his four-year collegiate career with 28 goals and 60 assists.
