An Amherstburg native has signed a new contract with the NHL club that employs him.

Michael DiPietro has signed a one-year, two-way contract extension through the 2024-25 season, the Boston Bruins announced last Wednesday.

Bruins’ general manager Don Sweeney announced March 20 in a post to the team’s website that the team has signed the goaltender to the extension with that contract extension having an NHL cap hit of $775,000.

The Bruins point out that DiPietro, 24, has appeared in 26 games with their American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate in Providence this season. DiPietro has recorded a 17-8-0-4 record with a 2.52 goals against average and .917 save percentage.

“The 6-foot, 200-pound goaltender has played in 101 career AHL games with the Providence Bruins, Abbotsford Canucks and Utica Comets, compiling a career record of 57-33-6-5 with a 2.76 goals against average and .909 save percentage,” the Bruins’ website states.

DiPietro, who played his junior career with the Windsor Spitfires and Ottawa 67s, was originally selected by the Vancouver Canucks in the third round (64th overall) of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft. He was traded by the Canucks, along with prospect Jonathan Myrenberg, to the Bruins in exchange for Jack Studnicka Oct. 27, 2022.
