The Daily: Free Agent Farinacci Signs With Boston Bruins



It’s not Robert Mastrosimone, but another college free agent was snapped up quickly after reaching free agency. Harvard’s John Farinacci inked a two-year deal with the Bruins and Boston Hockey Now’s Jimmy Murphy writes that the forward couldn’t be happier:

“I loved everything the Bruins had to offer, and I’m super excited,” Farinacci told reporters. “Nothing could compare to the opportunity to join the Bruins.”

The center recorded 20 points (5-15) in 19 games with the Crimson and was originally a third round pick with the Arizona Coyotes. Now, he has a chance to work his way to the NHL with a team just a season removed from the league’s best record. He used a former Bruins legend, in a humble way, for a comparison.

“Obviously not comparing myself at all, but a guy that I watched a ton and really tried to emulate myself after was Patrice Bergeron,” Farinacci said.  “I think the way that he played the game was amazing. That’s a guy that I try to play like as much as I can.”
