The Boston Bruins on Tuesday traded defenseman Yury Alexandrov to the New York Islanders for future considerations.

Alexandrov, a 2006 second-round pick of the Bruins, had 19 points in 66 games with the AHL Providence Bruins last season, his first in North America.

However, Alexandrov opted to play in his native Russia this season. He had 6 points in 37 games split between SKA St. Petersburg and Avangard Omsk. In six playoff games with Omsk, the 6-foot, 185-pounder has a goal and four assists.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
