Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed free agent forward Carter Camper to an entry-level contract. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. Camper will report to the Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League.
Camper recently finished his senior season at Miami University (CCHA). The 22-year-old played in 39 games for the Redhawks, tallying 19 goals and 38 assists for 57 points with 27 PIM. He finished second on the team in scoring, and his nine power play goals led the team. This season, he was named CCHA Scholar-Athlete of the Year and helped guide Miami to a 23-10-6 record and an NCAA Tournament appearance.
In 156 career collegiate games, Camper had 69-114=183 totals. The 5’9”, 173-lb native of Rocky River, Ohio finished his career second on Miami’s all-time points list and assists list. In his four years at Miami, the RedHawks made four NCAA Tournament appearances, two trips to the Frozen Four (2009 and 2010) and lost to Boston University in the 2009 National Championship. Before Miami, he played for the Lincoln Stars of the USHL.
