Bruins sign three-year deal with Kalus


BOSTON (AP) – The Boston Bruins have agreed to a three-year contract with left wing Petr Kalus, a second-round draft choice last year. Terms were not released.

Kalus, 18, led all Western Hockey League rookies in goals this season and led his team in goals and points with 36 goals and 22 assists for 58 points with 87 penalty minutes in 60 games for Regina.

The 6-foot-1 and 192-pound Czech Republic native was selected by Regina of the Western Hockey League with the third overall pick in the 2005 Canadian Hockey League import draft and played his first season in North America with the Pats last season.

“He’s shown a real scoring touch, he has some toughness as well and he’s a very competitive kid,” said Bruins interim general manager Jeff Gorton. “He had a strong showing in training camp last year for us and we look forward to seeing his improvement at training camp this season.”
