The Boston Bruins have acquired St. Louis Blues defensemen Wade Redden for a 7th round draft pick in 2014.
After trading for Jay Bouwmeester and Jordan Leopold, the Blues had a log jam of NHL-ready defensemen and were willing to part with one of them for the right price; a conditional pick was enough for Redden.
While he hasn’t been stellar, Redden can be a serviceable defensemen and the Bruins are hoping for just that. He can be paired on almost any defense-pairing, but early suggestions are that he may get a chance to rejoin his former partner Zdeno Chara.
