Boston Hockey Now’s Jimmy Murphy writes that the Boston Bruins still have to trade a regular to make room for the re-signing of Trent Frederic and goalie Jeremy Swayman.
Murphy says the Bruins, according to puckpedia, have $5.4 million in cap space left and will likely need more to sign both Frederic and Swayman.
A Bruins salary dump is coming.
Rumors have included several key names, including goalie Linus Ullmark. But Murphy believes the likely choice is defenseman Derek Forbort.
Forbert has a $3 million cap hit. That might also be enough if Patrice Bergeron or David Krejci decide to return to the Bruins.
