Found July 12, 2012 on The Awesome Boston:
The Brothers, Hanson CSNNE: The Bruins have signed a veteran forward to help their front-line depth, but it’s not a name anybody might have been expecting. The Bruins now have some good size and grittiness depth and will boast all the “Slap Shot” stories they can entertain during training camp as they’ve signed former University of Notre Dame forward Christian Hanson. Hanson — who signed a one-year, two-way deal — is the son of Dave Hanson, one of the famous bespectacled Hanson Brothers from the cult hockey film “Slap Shot”. A.B. Slap Shot is the best hockey movie of all time (Swayze & Lowe in Youngblood don’t compare to the maniacal Hanson Brothers). And now it all comes full circle for Boston hockey lovers. The second this kid dons a Bruins jersey will be legendary – and a good way to weed out the pink hats. Chiefs jerseys and t shirts will populate the Garden. Chants of “put on the foil” will be heard from the rafters. Old time hockey is on its way to Beantown. And if you have

Zdeno Chara rocks out with Slovak band

Who knew Zdeno Chara was an axe man? There are very few things the Bruins captain can't do on the ice, and off the ice he looks to be something of a renaissance man as well. His skills even extend to music as well. The B's blue liner did a little jamming recently at a Slovakian awards show where he was also named Slovakia's top defenseman. As Puck Daddy reports, Chara...

Tyler Seguin, Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton Expected to Lead Offensive Charge for Bruins

The Bruins have remained quiet this offseason, making the decision to stick with their current roster. With no offseason deals being struck, Bruins fans are turning their thoughts to the upcoming campaign. Tyler Seguin led the Bruins offense last year and is expected to lead the charge again this season. Meanwhile, Milan Lucic has the potential to grow into a perennial 30-goal scorer...

Lokomotiv Continues Rebuilding After Tragedy, Zdeno Chara Among Stars Scheduled to Play Exhibition Dedicated to KHL Club

While the signings in the NHL have slowed to a trickle nearly two weeks into the free agency period, a far more inspirational team building process continues to pick up steam in the KHL. Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, which had its entire roster and coaching staff killed in a tragic plane crash last Sept. 7, continued its rebuilding process by signing another player away from the NHL with...

Bruins Sign Veteran Exelby

                        Exelby has always been a tough defenseman and is always willing to drop the gloves. The Boston Bruins have signed veteran defenseman Garnet Exelby to a one year contract.  This move will help Providence more than Boston, but Exelby is an adequate option to put into the lineup if an injury occurs to a starting defenseman.  Exelby is a very tough...

Bruins Add Depth, Competition for Final Spots with Signings of Lane MacDermid, Garnet Exelby

The Bruins still haven't made any major moves this offseason, but they did continue to round out their depth on Wednesday. Boston re-signed restricted free agent forward Lane MacDermid and signed unrestricted free agent defenseman Garnet Exelby, and both will have a chance in camp to compete for spots with the big club. Both players signed one-year, two-way deals. MacDermid will...

Bruins Need Another Goal Scorer

                      Milan Lucic and Nathan Horton were the Bruin’s first line scorers in 2011. Ever since Claude Julien became the coach of the Boston Bruins in 2007 the Bruins have been a defense first hockey team, and that is fine, but you do need to score goals to win the game.  The Bruins used to be awful offensively, but in the past three years that has changed...

Bruins Haven't Made Big Splash This Offseason, But B's Can Still Be Happy With Smaller Moves

The Bruins haven't had made a handful of small moves this offseason, but they haven't made a big splash at any point, at least not yet. It's probably unlikely that the B's will make any big moves between now and training camp, but even with teams around the leagues wheeling and dealing and making blockbuster moves, Boston likely feels good where they are right now...

Boston Bruins Not Likely To Trade For Rick Nash

Although the Boston Bruins are on the approved list of teams that Columbus Blue Jackets forward Rick Nash would accept a trade to, do not expect the 2011 Stanley Cup champions to make a push for the talented winger. Nash would love to play for the Bruins next season and beyond. He would be an instant upgrade to Boston’s offense, especially on their anemic power play...

Bruins made a play for Parise

The Boston Bruins' offseason of ho-hum continued with the club signing some extra pieces and apparently ready to hit the 2012-13 season with basically the same roster as the one that left the 2012 playoffs in the first round. Oh, and word got out that Boston made an offer to free agent Zach Parise before he signed his 13-year contract to leave the New Jersey Devils and join...

Bruins Could Dangle Tim Thomas in Effort to Land Rick Nash (Video)

The Bruins would love to acquire Rick Nash from the Columbus Blue Jackets. The 28-year-old forward wouldn't mind going to Boston either, as the Bruins were one of six teams on Nash's preferred trade list. The problem facing the Bruins -- as well as the Red Wings, Rangers, Flyers, Penguins and Sharks, who are the other five teams on the list -- is that Blue Jackets general...

Bruins Sign Pair

BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today, July 11, that the club has signed defenseman Garnet Exelby and forward Lane MacDermid to one-year, two-way contracts through the 2012-13 season. Exelby’s contract is worth $600,000 at the NHL level and $130,000 at the AHL level over the course of the deal. MacDermid’s contract is worth $600,000 at the...
