With all the chaos that is July 1st of NHL free agency, numerous players that wore black & gold now find themselves in new colors.
The day began with B’s winger Benoit Pouliot signing a 1 yr $1.8 million deal with the lightning after being trade last week. At just 25 years of age, Pouliot scored 32 points including 16 goals (both career highs) for the Bruins last season.
Joe Corvo was also on the move today and will return to Carolina on a 1 year deal. Corvo registered 25 points in 75 games for the black & gold, despite dwindling playing time due to poor play on the back-end. In the end, Boston’s depth on the blueline with youngsters Torey Krug, Dougie Hamilton, and Matt Bartkowski left no spot in the lineup for Corvo for the 12-13 season.
And finally, rental Greg Zanon has landed with the Colorado Avalanche after recording 8 points in 56 games last season.
