Bruins get D Andrej Meszaros from Flyers for 3rd-round pick, claim D Corey Potter off waivers

BOSTON - The Boston Bruins have obtained defenceman Andrej Meszaros from the Philadelphia Flyers for a 2014 third-round draft choice.

The 28-year-old Meszaros played 38 games this season for the Flyers with five goals and 12 assists. The nine-year veteran's first two seasons with the Flyers were limited by a back injury in 2011-12, Achilles tendon surgery after that season and a shoulder injury in 2012-13.

The Bruins also claimed 30-year-old defenceman Corey Potter off waivers from Edmonton. The six-year veteran has five assists in 16 games this season.

Boston had been seeking a veteran defenceman after Dennis Seidenberg suffered a season-ending knee injury on Dec. 27 against Ottawa. They've also been without defenceman Adam McQuaid since he hurt his leg Jan. 19.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
