The Boston Bruins announced today that they’ve signed forward Justin Hickman to an entry-level contract.

From the release:

Hickman, 20, has spent the previous five campaigns with the Seattle Thunderbirds of the Western Hockey League from 2010 to 2015, establishing career highs last season when he notched 22 goals (tied for fourth on the team), 24 assists (tied for sixth on the team) and 46 points (sixth on the team) with 154 penalty minutes (first on the team). Hickman served as team captain for the last two seasons.

No word what the B’s have planned for Hickman, who played five AHL games for Bridgeport in 2013-14 on an amateur tryout agreement.
