Finally, the 2022-23 regular season begins for the Boston Bruins!
On Tuesday, the Bruins signed defenseman Anton Stralman and finalized their 2022-23 roster.
That, more Boston Bruins, and NHL news. Also, the latest in NHL trade and free agent rumors in the latest Boston Hockey Now Bruins Daily:
After being assigned to the Providence Bruins (AHL), winger Nick Foligno and defenseman Mike Reilly were recalled as the Boston Bruins finalized their NHL roster on Tuesday. Unfortunately for winger Chris Wagner, he remained with the P-Bruins after clearing waivers on Monday.
The Boston Bruins also added defenseman Anton Stralman to their 2022-23 roster as they signed him to a one-year, $1 million contract on Tuesday.
Also on the 2022-23 roster for the Boston Bruins will be forwards A.J. Greer and Jakub Lauko, who will be making his NHL debut on Wednesday night against the Capitals in Washington D.C.
When the Calgary Flames signed winger Jonathan Huberdeau to an eight-year, $84 million contract with a $10.5M AAV back in August, my BHN colleague Joe Haggerty said that could be the comparable that David Pastrnak and his agent J.P. Barry use with the Boston Bruins in contract negotiations. On Tuesday night, TSN Insider Darren Dreger suggested the same and that it’s on the Bruins to bring talks to another level.
