BOSTON – The Boston Bruins have acquired defenceman Wade Redden from the St. Louis Blues and centre Rob Flick from the Chicago Blackhawks.
The trades came before the NHL’s trade deadline Wednesday and one day after the Bruins obtained five-time NHL scoring champion wing Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars.
Redden, who has played in 1,017 NHL games, was obtained for a conditional seventh-round draft pick next year that becomes a sixth-rounder if he plays in at least one game during this year’s playoffs. He has two goals and three assists in 23 games this season.
Flick was traded for forward Max Sauve in a deal involving AHL players. Flick has three goals, two assists and 97 penalty minutes for Rockford. Sauve has 10 goals and 13 assists for Providence.
