Boston Bruins general manager Don Sweeney opted for a depth move Thursday, as the team has signed forward Martin Bakos to a one-year, two-way contract worth $700,000 at the NHL level.

He also added two goals and three assists for five points in 10 postseason games. Bakos also represented Slovakia at the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, with one goal and two points four contests.
Bakos also scored one of the sickest shootout goals you’ll ever see earlier this season.
