Bruins ink Farinacci to 2-year, entry-level contract

The Boston Bruins signed forward John Farinacci to a two-year, entry-level contract, the team announced Wednesday.

The deal will carry an annual cap hit of $910,000.

Farinacci, 22, became an unrestricted free agent Tuesday after he didn’t sign with the Arizona Coyotes, who drafted him 76th overall in 2019.

The Red Bank, New Jersey native tallied five goals and 20 points in 19 games as Harvard’s captain last year. In three seasons with the Crimson, Farinacci accrued 25 goals and 61 points in 79 games.

Farinacci’s collegiate career was interrupted in 2020-21 when Harvard canceled its sports due to COVID. He starred for the United States’ world junior team that winter, registering five goals and seven points en route to the gold medal.

The Coyotes don’t receive a compensatory draft pick for losing Farinacci as a free agent.
