Robert Lantosi

The Boston Bruins have signed forward Robert Lantosi to a one-year entry-level contract, the club announced Thursday. The deal will carry a cap-hit of $750,000 at the NHL level.

Lantosi, 24, appeared in 50 games with the AHL’s Providence Bruins in 2019-20. It was Lantosi’s first season in North America. He recorded 31 points (11 g, 20 a) with a plus-10 rating in the AHL. The 5-foot-10, 185-pound forward skated in 56 games with Nitra MHC in the Slovak Tipsport Liga, the top league in Slovakia, in 2018-19. There, Lantosi scored 58 points (20 g, 38 a). He also finished with a plus-17 rating.

In 18 playoff games that spring, Robert Lantosi scored ten points (3 g, 7 a) in 18 games. It was his second season with Nitra MHC. He also spent nine games in 2017-18 with the club. Lantosi scored three points (1 g, 2 a) in those nine games, and added three more (1 g, 2 a) in eight playoff games. That performance earned him a full-time role in 2018-19.

Lantosi had reportedly generated interest from other NHL clubs prior to signing with the Bruins.

The Prievidza, Slovakia native was signed on July 8, 2019 to an AHL contract by the Providence Bruins.
