Bruins Make Two Small Deals At NHL Trade Deadline

The Bruins did their wheeling and dealing prior to yesterday’s swap meet, acquiring the trio of Chris Kelly (from Ottawa), Rich Peverley (from Atlanta), and Tomas Kaberle (Toronto). Since their arrivals, the B’s haven’t lost a game, currently riding a season-high five-game win streak, as they hope to end their road trip Tuesday night with a perfect 6-0 record.

While the B’s didn’t tinker with their NHL roster yesterday before the 3 p.m. deadline, GM Peter Chiarelli did make two deals involving players from his Providence roster:

  • Late Sunday night, it was announced that forward Brian McGrattan and defenseman Sean Zimmerman had been shipped to Anaheim in exchange for a pair of forwards, David Laliberte and Stefan Chaput.
  • Then yesterday, Chiarelli sent defenseman Jeff Penner and winger Mikko Lehtonen to Minnesota, in order to acquire goaltender Anton Khudobin.
  • Khudobin, Laliberte, and Chaput will all report to Providence for this weekend’s games.

And even though the Bruins weren’t very active in the days leading up to yesterday’s trade deadline, there were oddly a large number of ex-Bruins that changed addresses across the NHL over the past few days:

  • Brad Boyes was traded from St. Louis to Buffalo
  • Sergei Samsonov went from Carolina to Florida
  • Paul Mara went back to Montreal from Anaheim
  • Kris Versteeg left Toronto to join Philadephia
  • Dennis Wideman headed north to Washington from Florida
  • Also, Marco Sturm cleared waivers and will join Wideman as a member of the Capitals
