The Boston Bruins have signed defenseman Dennis Seidenberg to a four-year contract extension.

General manager Peter Chiarelli announced the move on Saturday.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Seidenberg has played in 374 regular season games and has 18 goals, 98 assists in seven NHL seasons.

Seidenberg was traded from Florida to Boston with Matt Bartkowski at the trade deadline.

He played 17 games for the Bruins and had two goals and seven assists.

Seidenberg missed the final four games of the regular season and the playoffs after suffering a lacerated tendon in his forearm on April 3. He had surgery three days later to fix the injury.
