The Boston Bruins announced today that they have signed Frederic Brunet to an entry-level contract. The deal will pay Brunet $860,000 annually over the next three seasons.

The Gatineau, Quebec, native spent the 2022-23 season in the QMJHL where he put up career highs in goals (16), assists (57), and points (73) across 66 games played. Brunet, 20, was promoted to the AHL after his season in juniors came to a close, where he contributed two assists in his lone game with the Providence Bruins.

The Bruins selected the 6’3″, 190-pound defenseman with the 132nd overall pick in the 5th round of the 2022 NHL draft. Brunet attended two Bruins Development Camps and participated in the organization’s prospect challenge before being invited to training camp this offseason. He will start the 2023-24 season with the Providence Bruins.
