NHL Trade

With the NHL Trade Deadline two weeks from today, Boston Bruins head coach Bruce Cassidy has officially sent out the bat signal to Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney to make a deal that will jumpstart his team’s dormant offense and at the top of his NHL Trade wishlist, is a puck-moving defenseman.
