Boston Bruins

The Boston Bruins got one more move in before the NHL trade deadline on Monday, adding size and depth to the right side of the defense. As the team announced, they’ve acquired defenseman Josh Brown and a 2022 seventh-round pick from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for forward Zach Senyshyn and a 2022 seventh-round pick.

Brown, 28, scored six assists in 46 games for the Sens in 2021-22, and has dished out 106 hits. He’s averaging 13:59 of ice time this season. Brown boasts a 6-foot-5, 221-pound frame, which could be of use for the back end of the Bruins’ defensive depth chart behind Charlie McAvoy and Brandon Carlo.

The trade follows up the Bruins’ much bigger acquisition of Hampus Lindholm from the Anaheim Ducks over the weekend.

Brown turned out to be the Bruins’ final move before the trade deadline passed at 3 p.m. ET on Monday. Winger Jake DeBrusk agreed to a surprise two-year extension and ended up not being traded.
