Bruins And Senators Complete Trade

The Boston Bruins have acquired Josh Brown and a conditional seventh-round pick from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Zach Senyshyn and a fifth-round pick.

We reported earlier that the Bruins were expressing interest in Brown, so it isn't surprising to see that a deal has not been finalized. With this move, the Bruins have added a much-needed right-handed defenseman to their roster. He will now be competing for a spot on the bottom pair with Connor Clifton. 

Brown will give the Bruins a bit more grit, which is certainly important come playoff time. In 46 games this campaign, he has six assists and a minus-9 rating. 

The Senators are adding one of the Bruins' infamous 2015 first-round selections in Senyshyn. The 24-year-old requested a trade earlier this season and now has gotten it. A career-AHLer, he has 19 goals and 12 assists in 51 games this season with the Providence Bruins. He will be hoping to get a spot in the NHL with his hometown team from here.
