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

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
