Islanders acquire Alexandrov from Bruins
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.
Quote of the Day

I had one really not-good game. I came back to the hotel and he [his father] was on Skype. My mother called first and said, 'Your father wants to talk to you.' So he moved my mother away, and he yelled at me for like 30 seconds. I understood him, and then he said, 'I'm done.' And he was gone. The next game I got my first shutout.
