The Boston Bruins grabbed the biggest prize available at the trade deadline. The Bruins have agreed to a trade with the Buffalo Sabres for forwards Taylor Hall, and Curtis Lazar. The Bruins are sending Anders Bjork along with a 2nd round pick to Buffalo. The Bruins were busy tonight, also acquiring defenseman Mike Reilly from the Ottawa Senators for a 3rd round pick in 2022.
Hall, who will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, had been a disappointment in Buffalo. Hall was expected to take Buffalo to the next level, but only came up with 2 goals and 17 assists in 37 games this season.
Perhaps Hart will find success in new surroundings. Hall won the Hart Memorial Trophy as the league MVP only a few years ago in 2018 when he had 39 goals and 54 assists.
Hall will need to find a new number though, because #4 has a place in the rafters for all eternity in Boston.
My bold prediction: Taylor Hall is going to need to change his number with the Bruins. pic.twitter.com/7TT2ImMBKp
