Tomas Kaberle traded to Canadiens

If Bruins fans didn’t boo him during the playoffs, they’ll certainly boo him now.

Defenseman Tomas Kaberle [1], who won the Stanley Cup [2] 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.
