The Boston Bruins, parent club of the AHL’s Providence Bruins, announced Wednesday that they have signed defenseman Andy Wozniewski to a one-year contract.

Per club policy, terms of the deal will not be disclosed.

Wozniewski split the 2008-09 season between the St. Louis Blues’ and Pittsburgh Penguins’ AHL affiliates. He played in 56 games for the Peoria Rivermen recording one goal, 16 assists and 56 penalty minutes before being traded to the Penguins organization. He then skated in 18 games for the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and posted two goals, two assists and 26 penalty minutes.

Wozniewski appeared in one NHL game for the Blues during the 2008-09 season, on Feb. 3 vs. Columbus.

The Buffalo Grove, Ill., native has tallied two goals, 10 assists and 81 PIM in 77 career NHL games with St. Louis and Toronto, along with 15 goals, 47 assists and 178 PIM in 174 career AHL matches with Wilkes-Barre, Peoria and Toronto.

The 6-foot-5, 225-pound defenseman was signed to his first pro contract with Toronto on May 27, 2004, and was a member of the Leafs organization until he signed as a free agent with the Blues on July 17, 2008.
