Boston College hockey's senior captain has signed an entry level contract with the Boston Bruins. Cross was a second round (35th overall) draft pick of the Bruins in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.

Cross will report to Providence and is expected to make his professional debut Friday against Bridgeport. The Providence Bruins have three regular season games remaining -- Friday vs. Bridgeport, Saturday at Albany and Sunday vs. Portland -- and are vying for a spot in the Calder Cup Playoffs. The Bruins' AHL affiliate is currently two points behind the Manchester Monarchs and Portland Pirates for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The captain finishes his career with 17 goals and 33 assists in 134 college games. Cross battled injuries for much of his career, but was able to set career highs in games played (44), assists (19) and points (24) this season. He captained this year's senior class to a 22-2 career postseason record, winning two National titles, three straight Beanpot titles and Hockey East tournament championships.

Cross continued BC's tradition of strong senior leaders and it's sad to see him go. Best wishes for continued success down the road at the Garden.

Go Eagles!
