Restricted free agent winger Jeff Lovecchio has accepted his qualifying offer and will return to the Bruins on a one-year deal, according to CapGeek.com.

Lovecchio will make $605,000 if he’s in the NHL and $62,500 in the AHL. Last season in his first full pro year, Lovecchio posted 15-9-24 totals in 65 games for the Providence (AHL) farm club. Lovecchio was one of the last cuts at last fall’s NHL camp and will compete for a fourth-line role again when the Bruins report for the upcoming season.
