Peverley, Bruins agree to 3-year extension

The Boston Bruins on Tuesday signed forward Rich year contract extension through the 2014-15 season.

Peverley joined the Bruins last February in a trade with the Atlanta Thrashers. The Ontario native notched just four goals and three assists in 23 games for Boston, but nearly doubled his production in the playoffs, posting 12 points, including four goals, during the Bruins run to the Stanley Cup.

The 29-year-old Peverley has registered 62 goals and 91 assists in 279 career games with Nashville, Atlanta and Boston.
