Bruins send defenceman Morris to Coyotes, acquire Seidenberg from Panthers

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins have traded defenceman Derek Morris to the Phoenix Coyotes and acquired defenceman Dennis Seidenberg from the Florida Panthers in separate deals before the NHL's trade deadline.

Morris has three goals, 22 assists and 26 penalty minutes in 58 games for the Bruins this season. Morris finished the 2008-09 season with five goals, 15 assists and 40 penalty minutes in 75 games for the Coyotes and the New York Rangers.

The Bruins sent forwards Byron Bitz and Craig Weller to Florida for Seidenberg.

The Panthers also traded the rights to Ohio State defenceman Matt Bartkowski to Boston and got a second-round pick in the 2010 draft.

Seidenberg, a member of Germany's 2010 Olympic team, has appeared in 62 games for the Panthers this season.
