The Providence Bruins are wasting no time signing players to their squad entering their 21st season in the American Hockey League. The team announced today that they have signed forward Justin Courtnall to a contract. Due to the team’s policy, financial terms will not be disclosed.
Courtnall has spent the last three years at Boston University as an assistant captain.
He recorded seven points (4G 3A). He was originally drafted by the Tampa Bay Lightning on the seventh day of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft, but the 23 year-old decided to finish his collegiate career. Courtnall had 13 points in 104 penalty minutes for the Terriers.
Courtnall is the son of former Bruins forward Geoff Courtnall and the nephew of Russ Courtnall.
