BREAKING: Bruins Acquire Andrej Meszaros

andrejmeszarosbostonbruinsvphiladelphiao94oba-nuqzlWith the NHL trade deadline upon us, Peter Chiarelli and the Boston Bruins have made their move, acquiring defenseman Andrej Meszaros from the Philadelphia Flyers in exchange for a third round draft pick, according to reports.

Sportsnet’s Dan Murphy reported the deal first on twitter, in the final hour before the deadline.

Meszaros, 28, is a left-handed shot from the point in the last year of a six-year $24m deal.

In his ninth NHL season, Meszaros has 17 points in 38 games for the Flyers averaging 17:22 TOI.

The Bruins were hungry for depth on defense after losing Dennis Seidenberg earlier in the season to an ACL tear and were left with a largely inexperienced group roaming the blue-line. Meszaros should provide the depth they are looking for at a cheap price, unlike many other defensive trade pieces on the market.

Meszaros is already a friendly face to Bruins captain Zdeno Chara, the two played on Team Slovakia in the recent Sochi Olympics.

Meszaros has 54 goals-165 assists-219 points and a plus-34 rating in 571 games thus far in his career and is a four-time 30 point scorer.
