While the biggest news to come from the Boston Bruins was the signing of Jarome Iginla, the Bruins also added four more players. Peter Chiarelli signed Chad Johnson, Bobby Robins, Nick Johnson, and Mike Moore to increase the Bruins' depth.

Robins, Nick Johnson, and Moore all signed two-way deals and are expected to at least begin the season in Providence. Chad Johnson, on the other hand, signed a one-way deal and is apparently Tuukka Rask's new backup. Many expected Niklas Svedberg to get that job but now he has another year to develop in Providence.

Chad Johnson played in just four regular season games last season with the Phoenix Coyotes, going 2-0-2 with a 1.21 goals against average and .954 save percentage. He's played in just 10 regular season games in his career since 2009 but has 170 AHL games under his belt.

Robins has spent the last two seasons with the Providence Bruins and has become a fan favorite there. He has 17 goals and 28 assists in 212 AHL games. He brings toughness and some depth to the fourth line.

Nick Johnson also comes from Phoenix. He scored four goals and two assists in 17 games last season. In his career, Nick has 14 goals and 37 points in 104 NHL games. If he appears in Boston, it will also not be to score goals. He will most likely be a fourth line replacement if injuries arise.

Moore did not play in the NHL last season. He scored five goals and 16 points with the Milwaukee Admirals, affiliate of the Nashville Predators, last season. He appeared in six NHL games with the San Jose Sharks in 2009-2010, scoring one goal.
