The Boston Bruins have signed the last of their restricted free agents as they agreed to a one-year deal with centre Pavel Zacha.

The $3.5 million cap hit for one-year will take the 25-year-old into unrestricted free agency next summer.

The sixth-overall pick in the 2015 NHL Draft was acquired by the Bruins during this off-season in a trade for centre Erik Haula.

Zacha tallied a career-high 36 points this past season for the New Jersey Devils, on 15 goals and 21 assists in 70 games played.
