Report: Bruins, Kings Working to Finalize Marco Sturm Trade

When trade rumors surfaced recently about Bruins winger Marco Sturm, Bruins general manager Peter Chiarelli adamantly denied that there was anything set up and ready to go.

However, TSN's Bob McKenzie is reporting via Twitter that the Bruins and Kings are once again talking about a trade that would send Sturm to Los Angeles.

"Here we go again: BOS and LAK working on details to finalize Marc Sturm trade," McKenzie tweeted. "Real good chance it happens [Saturday], but…"

ESPN's Pierre LeBrun also tweeted this on Saturday:

"Source says Sturm deal to LA still not done but 'could happen this weekend…'''

Reports surfaced on Dec. 3 that the Bruins had agreed to trade the forward to the Kings. Chiarelli, though, denied the reports in a statement following an 8-1 Bruins win on the same day.

Chiarelli insisted that there was "no trade in place for Marco."
