Dougie Hamilton will stay with Bruins

RALEIGH, N.C. — In Monday night’s 5-3 win over the Hurricanes, Dougie Hamilton appeared in his fifth NHL game and set up the deciding goal. On Tuesday against New Jersey, Hamilton will make his sixth NHL appearance. By doing so, this career-opening stretch officially will become Year No. 1 on Hamilton’s three-year entry-level contract.

The Bruins are just fine with that. Hamilton’s days of playing junior in Niagara are over. General manager Peter Chiarelli told Hamilton before Monday’s game that he is now a full-time NHLer.
