"I'm sure I'll spend some time down there," said Pandolfo, who signed a one-year deal with the Bruins on Tuesday. "I don't know if it will be now or a little bit later. I'll take it day by day and see what they do."
Report: Bruins sign Pandolfo to one-year deal | 02/12/2013 2:43 PM
NewsA source tells CSNNE's Joe Haggerty that the Boston Bruins signed Jay Pandolfo to a one-year, $600,000 contract.
CSN New England
ImpactThe Bruins placed Pandolfo on waivers Tuesday, which led many to believe Pandolfo had signed after spending weeks working out with the team as an unsigned free agent. If he clears waivers, it's possible Pandolfo could spend a few games in the AHL to get his conditioning up to game level. Either way, he doesn't have a ton of fantasy value in most formats.
