(SB Nation, Jeremiah Oshan) - The Boston Bruins made one final move before the NHL Trade Deadline, picking up defenseman Greg Zanon from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Steven Kampfer on Monday, according to NHL.com. Kampfer, 23, had played in just 10 games this year and only got on the ice when injuries opened up playing time.

Zanon is more of a stay-at-home defender, but has proved adept at blocking shots and making life difficult for opposing players. In 39 games with the wild this year, he 104 blocked shots and 77 hits. A year ago he had 212 blocked shots, which was the second highest total in the NHL. Among players with at least 100 blocked shots this year, none have played in as few games as Zanon. He's also contributed two goals and four assists.
