Bruins add a pick in free agency

Posted By DJ Bean On July 1, 2010 @ 2:28 pm In General | 1 Comment

It isn’t a big-name player, but the Bruins have picked up a valuable commodity on the first day of NHL [1] free agency.

As part of the Derek Morris [2] trade with Phoenix, the Bruins were to receive the Coyotes’ fourth round pick, which would be upgraded to a third-rounder if the defenseman returned to Phoenix. With TSN’s report that Morris has signed a four-year, $11 million deal, the Bruins will now recieve the earlier draft choice. The team now has two first-rounders (their own and the Maple Leafs’ –start YouTubing Adam Larsson), two second-rounders (their own and Minnesota’s from the Chuck Kobasew [3] deal) and a the Coyotes’ third (they sent their own to Florida in the Nathan Horton [4] deal).
