Bruins’ Daniel Paille signs with Ilves in Finland

Daniel Paille signed with Finland’s Ilves Tampere, the 12th Bruins player to join a European team during the NHL lockout. Paille is the second Bruin to join the Finnish league. Rich Peverley had signed with JYP.

Paille, who had been skating in Boston with an ever-shrinking group of local players, is the team’s NHLPA player representative. This would have been the first season of Paille’s three-year, $3.9 million extension, which the fourth-line left wing signed June 1.


The Bruins’ originally scheduled game against Phoenix Monday night will mark their 24th game lost to the lockout.

Ilves was the former club of Tuukka Rask. Current NHLers on the Ilves roster include Anders Lindback and Max Talbot.
