The Boston Bruins will bring back trade deadline acquisition John-Michael Liles on a one year, $2MM deal, reports Elliotte Friedman. A spot on their back end moving forward was opened up yesterday with the buyout of Dennis Seidenberg.
The right-shot defenseman had six points in 17 games with the Bruins after coming over from the Carolina Hurricanes last season. He also added 15 points (6-9-15) in 64 games with the ’Canes prior to the deal.
The 35 year old has played in 12 NHL campaigns with Colorado, Carolina, Toronto, and Boston. He has 800 games under his belt, scoring 87 goals and 278 assists.
