NHL Rumors: Boston Bruins & Canadiens Becoming Trade Candidates

The Boston Bruins are reportedly aiming to add another left-shot defenseman to their group before the 2023 Trade Deadline passes. As a result, it appears that they have a new defenseman on their radar, as The Fourth Period has reported that they are one of the teams interested in acquiring Joel Edmundson. 

Edmundson would have the potential to be a solid addition to the Bruins' roster, as he is an effective shutdown defenseman while playing at his best. The 2022-23 season has been a bit of a quiet one for him, however, as he has one goal to go along with six points. However, his reliable defensive play and immense physicality are what make him effective. 

The Bruins could definitely use a boost with their defensive group before the playoffs, so we will need to wait and see if Edmundson ends up being their guy. It would be quite intriguing to see, as the Bruins and Canadiens very well rarely make trades as heated rivals.
