The Bruins were informed over the weekend that Nathan Horton wouldn’t be re-signing with them. The club wasted no time seeking some sort of replacement for the veteran forward. One meeting of interest to Bruins fans would be the meeting between the B’s and newly minted free-agent forward Vincent Lecavalier. The longtime Tampa Bay forward was bought out by the club last week as one of the club’s compliance buyouts, which made him a free agent. Apparently, the Bruins are one of what’s believed to be a handful of teams interested in the 33-year-old. “I met with Vinny and his agent yesterday evening,” Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli said Sunday at the NHL draft in New Jersey. “With what happened with Nathan, it became a little more ripe. So, we had a good meeting and that’s where I’ll leave it.” Lecavalier is known as a center, but Chiarelli indicated the former Bolt would be open to changing positions. Lecavalier scored 10 goals and added 22 assists in 39 games for the Lightning in 2013. He’s averaged 62 points per season over his 14 years, but he hasn’t had more than 54 points in a season since 2009-10. Photo via Facebook/Tampa Bay Lighthing
