Bruins make two trades

The Bruins made a pair of minor-league trades on Thursday, sending Jeff LoVecchio and Jordan Knackstedt to the Panthers in exchange for defenseman Sean Zimmerman and a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2011 NHL [1] Draft. They also landed forward Juraj Simek from the Lightning for Levi Nelson.

Both players will report to Providence. For more on the Bruins, visit their team page at weei.com/bruins.
