LoVecchio bolts Broncos for AHL deal

Compiled by MiCHO Staff

The Providence Bruins of the American Hockey League announced Friday that the Boston Bruins have signed left wing Jeff LoVecchio to an amateur tryout agreement.

LoVecchio, 22, joins Providence after three seasons with the Western Michigan Broncos, where he collected 35 goals, 38 assists and 73 points, along with 98 penalty minutes, in 113 games. His most productive offensive campaign came as a sophomore, scoring 19 goals, dishing out 15 assists and collecting 34 points, all career-bests. LoVecchio suited up in a personal-high 40 games while also registering a high of 46 PIM as a freshman.

A native of Chesterfield, Mo., LoVecchio was named a finalist for the CCHA Defensive Forward of the Year Award in 2006-07. The nod came one year after the former WMU captain was tabbed as the school's Suzanne Klop Rookie of the Year.
