Rapid Reaction: Rick Nash traded to Boston FULL DEAL AND DETAILS

Rick Nash is heading to the Bruins. Here’s the breakdown:

Ryan Lindgren is a 20 year old defenseman prospect that the Bruins selected in the 2nd round in 2016. He is considered a physical blue liner that can provide the occasional offense.

Ryan Spooner is a 26 year old center that has 25 points in 39 games. A nice bottom 6 add.

Matt Beleskey is an agitator that if you recall sent Derek Stepan into the boards and putting him out of commission. He’s been out on waivers and is solely being moved to help Boston fit in Nash under the cap.

FULL DEAL: NASH TO BOSTON FOR 1ST ROUND PICK, RYAN SPOONER, MATT BELESKEY AND PROSPECT, RYAN LINDGREN, PLUS 7TH RD PICK
