The Bruins have finally signed intern Jay Pandolfo! No longer will he be just a pseudo-coach, hanging around at practices and awkwardly travelling with the team despite not being able to actually, you know, play.

From the Bruins press release:

Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, February 12, that the team has signed forward Jay Pandolfo to a one-year, two-way contract through the 2012-13 season and then placed
him on waivers. The contract is worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $350,000 at the AHL level.

The 6'1", 190-pound native of Burlington, MA is a veteran of 881 career NHL games and has registered 100 goals, 126 assists and 162 penalty minutes over 14 NHL seasons with the New Jersey Devils and New York
Islanders. He has appeared in 131 career playoff games (all with the Devils) and has tallied 11 goals, 22 assists and 33 points. Pandolfo is a two-time Stanley Cup champion, having won with the Devils in both 2000
and 2003.
