2 Boston Bruins Likely to be Traded this Summer

The Boston Bruins were eliminated by the New York Islanders from the Stanley Cup Playoffs and Bruins management has some serious work to do this summer. The likes of Tuukka Rask and Taylor Hall need new contracts and there's certainly going to be some Bruins being moved this offseason.

2 Boston Bruins Likely to be Traded this Summer:

Jake DeBrusk: The 24-year-old hasn't been able to find a steady home in Bean Town and once again finds himself within some trade chatter. DeBrusk recorded only 14 points in 41 games and was often seeing his ice-time reduced. The former first-round pick has one year left on his contract, paying him $3.675 million. Look for the Edmonton Oilers to come calling this summer.

Ondrej Kase: The 25-year-old is headed to restricted free-agency this summer and his next contract isn't likely coming from the Bruins. Kase hasn't done much since arriving in Boston via Anaheim and it's likely management cuts ties with him this summer. In the season and a half Kase has been a Bruin, he's only managed to be healthy enough to play in 20 games, recording nine assists. Tough trade when you acquire someone and they haven't scored in almost two years....

The Bruins looked unbeatable at times this season but when it mattered most, fell short to a very pesky defensive Islanders team. Keep an eye on these two Bruins as they are expected to be moved. The Bruins are going to have some fresh faces in the lineup next season as they try to get back to the Cup finals.
