The Boston Bruins have re-signed forwards Chris Kelly and Gregory Campbell, the agent for both players, Patrick Morris, confirmed Monday.

Kelly was signed to a four-year deal worth $12 million and Campbell to a three-year deal worth $4.8 million.

TSN's Bob McKenzie was the first to report the deals for Kelly and Campbell, who were both set to become unrestricted free agents July 1.

Kelly is coming off his best season, collecting a career-best 20 goals and 19 assists in 82 games. Kelly was acquired from Ottawa just prior to the 2011 NHL trade deadline.

Campbell, who had eight goals and eight assists in 78 games this season, joined the Bruins in June 2010 via a trade with the Florida Panthers that also brought forward Nathan Horton to Boston.
