Marco Sturm Trade Taking ‘Odd’ Turn, Still Waiting on Official Announcement From Bruins

When the puck dropped on Thursday night against the Tampa Bay Lightning, Marco Sturm was still a member of the Boston Bruins.

In a move that is being described as "odd" by Bruins analysts Mike Milbury and Andy Brickley, Sturm's reported trade to the Los Angeles Kings has yet earn the official stamp of approval.

Confirming the beliefs of Brickley and Milbury, TSN has reported that Sturm's injury issues are delaying the trade. Until the Kings are satisfied, the two teams are still finalizing the terms of the deal which could be announced late on Thursday.

Sturm may have said goodbye to his teammates on Thursday morning, but as of Thursday night, he's still a member of the black and gold.
