Don Sweeney Addresses Taylor Hall Deal, Busy Trade Deadline
The banged-up Boston Bruins are getting a boost for their late-season playoff push by acquiring forward Taylor Hall in a trade with the Buffalo Sabres. The Bruins are also adding checking line forward Curtis Lazar despite missing the past six games with an upper-body injury. Buffalo acquired fourth-year forward Anders Bjork and a second-round pick in a deal completed in advance of the NHL’s trade deadline. The Sabres agreed to retain half of the remainder of Hall’s one-year, $8 million salary as part of the deal. The NHL’s 2018 MVP was deemed expendable by last-place Buffalo while it retools for beyond this season.
