It looks like the Bruins have made their first move of the day, signing a former Jet.
Defenceman Paul Postma going to BOS. One year, $725K.— Bob McKenzie (@TSNBobMcKenzie) July 1, 2017
Short money for some depth on the blueline.
Postma has spent the entirety of his career with the Jets/Thrashers organization. He has 34 career points in 191 NHL games.
He hasn’t played a ton, averaging just over 10 minutes TOI last year.
His advanced stats show him as a guy who fits between a second and third pair defenseman.
Interestingly, this is another right-handed defenseman added by the Bruins.
Is he another depth guy, someone who can step in if Rob O’Gara can’t hang in the pros, or is something else coming?
