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.
