The Canadian Press

BOSTON - Mark Recchi is going to get another chance to win the Stanley Cup.

The veteran forward is on his way to the Boston Bruins in a deal that will see prospects Matt Lashoff and Martins Karsums go to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

The Bruins also get a second-round draft pick.

The 41-year-old Recchi will join his seventh NHL team and is after his third Stanley Cup. He won a championship with Pittsburgh in 1991 and Carolina in 2006.

He's earning US$1.5 million and will become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Recchi is having a bit of a renaissance season. He had five assists in a game against Calgary over the weekend.

In 62 games with the Lightning, he had 13 goals and 32 assists.

Quote of the Day

Because of the way they play and their skill set I don't think they're fourth-line players, so in my mind I'm looking at one of those guys I'll have to move over to the wing.
