If Bruins fans didn’t boo him during the playoffs, they’ll certainly boo him now.
Defenseman Tomas Kaberle, who won the Stanley Cup last season with the Bruins, was traded from the Hurricanes to the Canadiens Friday. The trade ends a brief and positively brutal stint in Carolina in which the 33-year-old had nine points over 29 games, though four of those points came in his last two games. Kaberle is a minus-12 this season and was made a healthy scratch on Nov. 27.
The Bruins traded a first-round pick, center Joe Colborne, and a second-rounder to Toronto last February in exchange for Kaberle. By the end of his time in Boston, Kaberle was logging career-lows in ice time. He was not re-signed in the offseason, and took a surprisingly rich three-year, $12.75 million deal with the Hurricanes.
In exchange for Kaberle, the Habs sent Jaroslav Spacek to Carolina.
