Boston Bruins Sign Former Devils Forward

The Boston Bruins have been making significant moves so far this summer.

Their latest addition is forward Jesper Boqvist, who has signed a one-year contract worth $775,000. Boqvist, a 25-year-old Swede, previously played for the New Jersey Devils, where he showcased his versatility and scoring ability.

In the previous season, Boqvist recorded 10 goals and 11 assists in 70 games, impressing with his on-ice performance and disciplined play.

He even garnered recognition as a Lady Byng Trophy contender, highlighting his commitment to fair play and sportsmanship.

Boqvist's signing comes alongside other notable roster changes for the Bruins.

The team has also acquired veteran forwards James van Riemsdyk and Milan Lucic, center Morgan Geekie, and defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk. Meanwhile, they traded Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno for defensemen Ian Mitchell and Alec Regula.

As the Bruins shape their lineup for the upcoming season, there remains uncertainty surrounding the future plans of key players Patrice Bergeron and David Krejci.
