The Bruins announced today that they have re-signed Tommy Cross, inking him to a one-year, two-way contract worth $650,000 at the NHL level. This will be Cross’s 6th season with the Bruins organization (7th if you count the 2 games he played after graduating from BC in 2012). Cross split his first season between the AHL and ECHL before spending 2 full seasons in Providence. He was named captain of the PBruins for the 2015-16 season and has retained that title. Over the past 2 seasons he has played 4 games for the Boston Bruins, scoring 1 goal and recording an assist.
Cross played a full 4 seasons at BC, winning 2 NCAA titles and establishing himself as one of the great BC hockey captains. In 291 games with the PBruins he has 98 career points, and he has shown improvement over the years as he continues to remodel himself as a player. Cross set a number of career highs during the 2016-17 season/post-season including goals (14), assists (30), and points (44). He also held a career high +18 during the regular season and +21 overall. Cross also scored his first NHL goal this season - in a playoff game no less.
If you can’t wait until fall to see Cross play, make sure to get your tickets to this summer’s Comm Ave Charity Class, where he will be playing on Team BC. The CACC raises money for Compassionate Care ALS and for the Travis Roy Foundation.
