The Boston Bruins have made it official by appointing Milan Jurcina, a former Bruins defenseman from the mid-2000s, as their European Scout. With this promotion, it's clear that Jurcina has signed a contract with the Bruins.

This announcement effectively signals the end of Jurcina's playing career, even though he continued to lace up his skates until last season, featuring in 12 games for HC Sparta Praha in the Czech Extraliga.

Now 40 years old, Jurcina's last appearance in the NHL was with the New York Islanders during the 2011-12 season.

In his new role as European Scout, he is poised to have a significant impact on talent scouting in the Czech and Slovak regions. This decision falls in line with the Bruins' track record of successfully developing players from this area in recent years.
