Anthony Camara

The Boston Bruins and Ottawa Senators agreed to terms with a pair of prospects on Thursday.

Boston signed Anthony Camara, its third-round pick (81st overall) from the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Camara, 19, has enjoyed a highly successful 2012-13 campaign, notching 36G-24A-60PTS in 48 games with OHL Barrie — the 11th most goals in the Ontario League — and representing Team Canada at the 2013 World Juniors in Russia, recording two assists in six games.

The Senators, meanwhile, have agreed to terms with WHL Portland defenseman Troy Rutkowski.

Rutkowski, 20, has spent the last five years with Portland, emerging this season as one of the Western League’s most dynamic offensive defensemen.

He has 61 points in 69 games — second among all WHL blueliners — and leads all Winterhawk rearguards in scoring.

Rutkowski was originally drafted by Colorado in the fifth round (137th overall) of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft, but chose not to sign with the team. He’s inking with the Sens as a free agent.

    Excited to see Camara. May be one of those players that is experiencing an unexpected rise in skill-level after they drafted him for his toughness, as an ‘energy’ guy. Lucic was sort of a late-bloomer in that regard, too. Kid can hit – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zdShL1TG9BM
