Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins have acquired veteran defenseman Nick Holden from the New York Rangers. In exchange for the 30-year-old blueliner, the Bruins sent 24-year-old defender Rob O’Gara and a 2018 third-round draft pick to the Rangers. This deal came shortly after the Washington Capitals sent a third-round pick to acquire Michal Kempny from the Chicago

It didn’t take long for bad injury luck to strike the Bruins after the team was relatively healthy for a few months.

It’s something that would cause concern if it was happening to any player, let alone a 20-year-old who is right in the thick of the Calder Trophy race. It’s for that

When a team is rolling the way the Boston Bruins have been, the hope is that nothing changes for as long as possible. Unfortunately, life isn’t always fair and things don’t always go as planned. For the Bruins, this was the case when Charlie McAvoy had surgery, Brad Marchand got suspended and Noel Acciari got

The NHL has come down hard on Boston Bruins’ forward Brad Marchand, suspending him five-games for an illegal elbow to the head of New Jersey Devils’ forward Marcus Johansson. The play went unpenalized but the damage was long-lasting as Johansson was later diagnosed with a concussion. Notably, Johansson also missed a month of hockey in

With the NHL Trade Deadline roughly six weeks away, the Boston Bruins’ approach to the cutoff will be dictated by their answer to one simple question: How important is this season? For all intents and purposes, they’ve “arrived” a bit earlier than most expected. That’s not to say that being firmly entrenched in playoff position

When the Boston Bruins sent Anders Bjork down to Providence of the AHL, it could have very easily been seen as a demotion. In reality, it’s a situation where the Bruins are doing too well as a team to focus on helping a struggling young rookie along right now. It’s no secret that Bjork has

Unless they’re named Jaromir Jagr or Tom Brady, turning 40 tends to mark the last hoorah of a professional athlete’s career.

Recent rumors indicate that the Boston Bruins have expressed interest in Edmonton Oilers center Ryan Nugent-Hopkins. Nick Kypreos mentioned the Bruins on Hockey Night in Canada as a team that has checked on the 24-year-old pivot’s availability. The Bruins may be looking for a center for any number of reasons.

Though a Stanley Cup Championship in 2011 was probably worth it, Peter Chiarelli’s tenure with the Boston Bruins is (for better or worse) largely tainted by miscalculations. Swings-and-misses in free agency and at the draft. Rash, compromising, franchise-altering trades. Egregious misappropriations of precious funds which served to dismember one of the league’s elite franchises. You
