The Bruins have acquired defenseman Wade Redden, according to CSNNE.com’s Joe Haggerty and confirmed by TSN.
Redden, 35, spent his first 11 years with the Ottawa Senators after being drafted second-overall in the 1995 NHL draft. After two difficult seasons with the Rangers, Redden was picked up by the Blues prior to the 2013 season. In 23 games this year in St. Louis, Redden has two goals and three assists to go with a minus-2 plus-minus rating.
Chris Johnston is reporting that the B’s will cough up a seventh-rounder in 2014, as seen below.
In 1,017 career games, Redden has 108 goals, 347 assists and a plus-160 plus-minus rating. During the 2005-06 season, he led the NHL with a plus-35 rating and posted a career-high 50 points (10 goals).
