The Boston Bruins added to their defense with Derek Forbort, and hours later grabbed Erik Haula to help out up front.

Haula and the Bruins agreed to a two-year deal, according to multiple reports. The Athletic’s Pierre LeBrun reported the salary figures.

The Bruins will be the sixth team Haula has played for. He’s coming off a season with the Nashville Predators in which he scored nine goals with 12 assists. The 30-year-old left winger can also center a line if needed.

He had a monster season in 2017-18 that he hasn’t replicated since. In a move that hosed themselves, the Minnesota Wild traded Alex Tuch to the Golden Knights so Vegas would add select Haula. Both went on to become impact players, with Haula scoring a whopping 29 goals with 26 assists in Vegas’ debut season.

He figures to fit in as a third line left winger for the Bruins.
