BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed forward Rich Peverley to a three-year contract extension through the 2014-15 season.

The 29-year-old Peverley was acquired by the Bruins with Boris Valabik from the Atlanta Thrashers on February 18, 2011 for Mark Stuart and Blake Wheeler. In 23 games with the Bruins last season, he notched 4-3=7 totals in the regular season and went on to add 4-8=12 totals during the Bruins 2011 Stanley Cup championship run. For the full year split between Atlanta and Boston, Peverley skated in 82 regular season games with 18 goals and 23 assists for 41 points. He has not missed a game over the last two-plus seasons.

This season, Peverley has appeared in three games for the Bruins and has a team-high two goals.
