42-year-old Mark Recchi will be sticking around the Boston Bruins to be a part of their youth movement.

Recchi signed a one-year contract to return to Boston for his 22nd NHL season, making the league’s oldest active player under contract. If 48-year-old Chris Chelios, who can become an unrestricted free agent, doesn’t return to the NHL, Recchi would become the oldest player in the league. Chelios played with the Atlanta Thrashers last season, his 26th NHL season.

By playing another season in Boston, it gives Recchi a chance to play with 18-year-old prospect Tyler Seguin, the number 2 overall pick in last week’s NHL draft.

A seven-time All-Star, Recchi leads active players with 922 assists and is second with 563 goals. He is ninth in career NHL games played with 1,571, but if he plays a full season in 2010-2011, he’ll move up as high as fourth all-time.

The Bruins reached the Eastern Conference semifinals this past season, taking a 3-0 lead over Philadelphia before the Flyers tied the series and the came back from a three-goal deficit in game 7 to advance. Boston is just the third NHL team to lose a playoff series it led by three games.

Recchi garnered 18 goals and 25 assists last season plus a team-leading six goals along with four assists in 13 playoff games. He was picked up by Boston from the Tampa Bay Lightning in March 2009. He has also suited up with Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Montreal, Carolina and Atlanta.
