The Bruins have signed forward Daniel Paille to a three-year contract through the 2014-15 season and forward Chris Bourque to a two-year contract through 2013-14, general manager Peter Chiarelli announced Friday.

Paille's contract is worth $1.3 million per season, while Bourque's deal will be a two-way contract in year one (2012-13) -- $550,000 at the NHL level and $200,000 at the American Hockey League level. In the second year, it will be a one-way contract worth $550,000.

Paille has been with the Bruins for three seasons, registering 25 goals and 22 assists in 186 regular-season games. He had nine goals and six assists in 69 games in 2011-12.

Bourque, the son of Hall of Famer Ray Bourque, was acquired from the Washington Capitals on May 26 in exchange for Zach Hamill. Bourque led the AHL in scoring last season with 27 goals and 66 assists. He has played in 33 career NHL games (20 for the Pittsburgh Penguins and 13 for the Capitals).
