Boston Bruins

Boston Bruins defenseman Derek Forbort is expected to be activated off of long-term injury reserve today so he can join the Bruins for their game with the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight.

In order to stay salary cap compliant when they do activate Forbort, the Boston Bruins waived defenseman Anton Stralman on Monday. However, even if Stralman clears today, the Bruins are still going to be up against the cap with hardly any wiggle room. That’s why, Bruins general manager Don Sweeney is busy working the NHL trade wire to gain some cap space.
