Bruins get D Corvo from Carolina for 4th rounder
The Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins acquired defenseman Joe
Corvo from the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday for a fourth-round
pick in next year’s draft.
Corvo scored 11 goals with 29 assists last year. He became
available when the Hurricanes signed former Bruin Tomas Kaberle as
a free agent.
In eight NHL seasons, Corvo has 79 goals and 179 assists. He has
played for the Hurricanes, Washington Capitals, Ottawa Senators and
Los Angeles Kings.
A 6-foot-1, 210-pound defenseman, Corvo was originally drafted
by the Kings in the fourth round of the 1997 draft.
Also Tuesday, Chiarelli said forward Milan Lucic had surgery to
fix the cartilage in his nose, and backup goalie Tuukka Rask had
arthroscopic surgery on the meniscus in his knee. Neither is
expected to require a long recovery.
The Bruins also signed forwards Jamie Tardif and Josh Hennessy.
Hennessy, a native of Brockton, Mass., who played 20 games for
Ottawa from 2006-10, played for the Swiss club HC Lugano last
season. Tardif spent the last two years in the AHL.
