Report: Bruins land top-four defenseman in trade with Ducks originally appeared on NBC Sports Boston

The Boston Bruins have woken up from their pre-NHL trade deadline slumber in a big way.

The Bruins are buying Anaheim Ducks defenseman Hampus Lindholm. ESPN’s Kevin Weekes reported on Saturday.

Details of the trade are yet to be revealed, but Lindholm is a terrific addition who fills Boston’s need for a left-shooting blueliner.

Analyzing Don Sweeney’s trading history at the trade deadline

The 28-year-old Sweden native is one of the top four defenders who boasts an impressive skill set, with five goals and 17 assists in 61 games for Anaheim this season. The Bruins were among several teams rumored to be interested in Lindholm.

Lindholm is in the final year of a six-year, $31.5 million deal, so if the Bruins like what they see from the nine-year veteran down the stretch, they could try to re-sign him this offseason.

Boston is almost locked into a wild card spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. The B’s have been playing very well of late (7-2-1 in their last 10 games) and the addition of Lindholm could give them more momentum in their goal of making another Stanley Cup run with a veteran core led by Patrice Bergeron and Brad Marchand.
