Bruins' Kelly joins Swiss team
By James Murphy
Forward Chris Kelly became the 10th Bruins player to sign overseas during the NHL lockout, signing a month-long deal with HC Red Ice of the First Amateur League of Switzerland, his agent Pat Morris confirmed to ESPNBoston.com.
Kelly, who signed a four-year, $12 million contract with Boston on July 1, can renew his contract monthly and has an out clause if and when the NHL lockout ends.
The Ottawa native is coming off a career year in which he scored a career-high 20 goals and had 39 points.
