The Boston Bruins made their big move Sunday, but they still beat the buzzer with a minor deal prior to Monday’s NHL trade deadline.
The Bruins acquired forward Tommy Wingels from the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for a fifth-round draft pick.
Wingels has seven goals and five assists in 57 games this season with Chicago.
Acquiring Wingels is almost purely a depth move. The 6-foot, 200-pound center is yet another option down the middle for Boston. The B’s added Wingels a day after signing veteran winger Brian Gionta to a one-year contract.
