Report: Bruins to sign Jose Theodore
TVA Sports is reporting Jose Theodore is on the verge of signing a one-year deal with the Bruins worth between $800,000 and $1.1 million.

Jose Theodore may soon be joining the Boston Bruins.

TVA Sports is reporting the 36-year-old goaltender is on the verge of signing a one-year contract with the Bruins worth between $800,000 and $1.1 million.

Theodore, who would serve as Tuukka Rask’s backup, spent the past two seasons with the Florida Panthers. He went 4-6-3 with a 3.29 goals-against average and .893 save percentage in 15 appearances last season.

In 648 games with Florida, Minnesota, Washington, Colorado and Montreal, Theodore is 286-254-69 with a 2.68 GAA and .909 save percentage.

Theodore's agent, Don Meehan, told The Canadian Press on Sunday there is no truth to the report.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
