BOSTON (AP) _ The Bruins agreed with center Alexei Zhamnov on a three-year contract on Thursday, one day after signing defenseman Brian Leetch.

Zhamnov has 248 goals, 461 assists and 638 penalty minutes in 12 NHL seasons. He has scored 20 or more goals in nine seasons and a season-high 30 goals with Winnipeg in just 48 games in 1994-95.

He was an All-Star in 2002 and has won three Olympic medals _ one of each kind _ for Russia.

Zhamnov, 34, played four seasons of hockey in Russia before joining the NHL. He played four years with the Winnipeg Jets before he was traded to Chicago in a multiplayer deal for Jeremy Roenick.

Zhamnov played more than seven seasons with the Blackhawks, scoring 20-or-more goals five times, before finishing the 2003-04 season with Philadelphia. He returned to Russia last year during the lockout.
