P.E.I. native Adam McQuaid has signed a three-year extension on his contract with the Boston Bruins, reportedly worth $4.7 million.

McQuaid was a strong presence during the Bruins' run for the Stanley Cup this spring. The team announced the extension Thursday, but did not release financial details.

The website is reporting McQuaid's three-year deal is worth $4.7 million.

McQuaid has one year left in his current deal.

It's been a good summer for Islanders in the NHL. Earlier this month Brad Richards signed a nine-year deal with the New York Rangers.

He'll make $12-million this season, making him the highest-paid player for the 2011-12 season.
