The St. Louis Blues have traded defenseman Wade Redden to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2014 draft, as reported by Jeremy Rutherford. The pick is a conditional one. If Redden plays at least one playoff game for the Bruins, the seventh-round pick becomes a sixth-round pick.
Redden leaves the Blues after signing a one-year, $800,000 contract (with $200,000 in potential bonuses) with the team after his previous contract was bought out by the New York Rangers.
The Blues had defensemen to spare after they brought in Jordan Leopold and Jay Bouwmeester, making the Redden trade a rather obvious case of dumping a spare part for a pick.
Redden appeared in 23 games with the Blues, scoring two goals, three assists while earning a (-2) rating. Redden's game was slow to develop upon arriving with the club, a clear sign that he had plenty of rust after spending considerable time down in the AHL.
However, as time went on, Redden worked through...

A.B. These are the types of posts that prove social media is good for professional sports leagues. With technologies like Facebook, Twitter and Instagram – teams can now offer an inside the locker room fan experience without the security clearances, VIP passes and visitor inconveniences. A Bruins fan like myself can now just press a few buttons on my phone and avoid the trespassing...
The Los Angeles Kings won the Stanley Cup last year, and that of course, got them a bunch of attention across the sports world. However, the Kings were already Internet famous, thanks to their often sarcastic and witty Twitter account.
Apparently that has carried over to their team website as well. The Kings had plenty of trade deadline coverage on Wednesday, including a trade tracker...
Jaromir Jagr arrived in Boston this morning and spoke with Channel 7 about being traded. Despite hating to move mid-season, he seemed pretty excited when he heard he was coming to Boston.

“Lots of pressure, that’s for sure, but I’m not the same guy I was 15 years ago, that’s for sure. But, you know, I can promise the fans -- I love to work...
BOSTON — There was much anticipation for Jaromir Jagr‘s debut in Bruins black and gold leading into Thursday’s game with the New Jersey Devils. Because of that, the Jagr circus may have overshadowed a fine performance from Tuukka Rask — just a little bit.
However, in the moments after the final horn sounded on a 1-0 Bruins win, it was Rask who was recognized in front of the...
Obviously the big aquisiton for the Bruins was Jaromir Jagr, but we all knew Chiarelli wasn't done. The defense this year hadn't been spectacular and Chiarelli said he wanted to add a defenseman to the mix. A lot of fans wanted someone like Yandle or Ryan or Boyle -- either the NHL unicorn (PMD) to help on the power play or a shut down defenseman to help what's...
It’s safe to say that many of the young guns in the Bruins locker room grew up idolizing Jaromir Jagr, but how many of those players can say they posed with the hockey legend as a squirt?
Milan Lucic can and he has the photo to prove it.
James Duthie tweeted out a photo of Lucic and his two brothers, Jovan and Nikola, posing with Jagr in what appears to be a hallway before or after...
The Boston Bruins have acquired defenseman Wade Redden from the St. Louis Blues and center Rob Flick from the Chicago Blackhawks.
The trades came before the NHL's trade deadline Wednesday and one day after the Bruins obtained five-time NHL scoring champion wing Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars.
Redden, who has played in 1,017 NHL games, was obtained for a conditional seventh...
Anton Khudobin made an unbelievable 45 saves in the Bruins’ win over the Senators Tuesday.
Things got anxious at the end with the Senators on a six-on-four power play and one of the Bruins’ best penalty killers in the locker room, but Boston withstood the flurry thanks to the physical play and sheer strength of Zdeno Chara to hold on and beat Ottawa, 3-2, in a wild, but very...
Nathan Horton broke a tie midway through the third period with his fourth goal in four games and the Boston Bruins beat the Ottawa Senators 3-2 with an aggressive attack that produced a season-high 50 shots Tuesday night.
While awaiting the arrival of newly acquired five-time NHL scoring leader Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars, the Bruins shook off their recent offensive woes...

The Bruins may have lost out on Jarome Iginla, but they did get the next best player on the market.
Tuesday afternoon, the Bruins announced that they had acquired veteran forward Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars in exchange for forward Lane MacDermid, the rights to unsigned draft pick Cody Payne, and a conditional second round pick that...
Just one day before the NHL trade deadline, the Bruins finally made a splash, acquiring veteran winger Jaromir Jagr from the Dallas Stars for a pair of prospects and a draft pick.
Though Jagr, 41, becomes the oldest player on the Bruins roster (surpassing 38-year-old Jay Pandolfo), he also comes to Boston tied with Brad Marchand for the team lead in goals with 14. Bruins general...
Jaromir Jagr wasn’t the first player taken in the 1990 draft. In fact, he wasn’t the second, third or fourth player picked. Jagr lasted until pick No. 5 those 23 years ago, behind Owen Nolan, Petr Nedved, Keith Primeau and Mike Ricci.
Nolan was the No. 1 overall pick that year, selected by the Quebec Nordiques. He would go on to play 18 seasons in the NHL, spending time with...
12:31 The Boston Bruins have traded Max Sauve to the Blackhawks in exchange for big center Rob Flick. A minor league transaction with two players looking for a change of scenery.

WARNING: WHAT YOU'RE ABOUT TO READ IS BASICALLY ME JIZZING MY PANTS OVER LAST NIGHT'S GAME. LETS FACE IT, IT WAS PROBABLY AS PERFECT OF A GAME THAT THE BRUINS COULD HAVE PLAYED OUTSIDE OF THE FIRST PERIOD. IF YOU WANTED ME TO DESCRIBE THIS RECAP WITH JUST ONE .GIF, IT WOULD BE THIS ONE:
Man, what a game this was. Is there anything better that you can ask...
