It seems like the Bruins have found their left-handed defenseman. UFA John Moore has reportedly signed a multi-year deal with the Bruins.

Moore was drafted in the first round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets, and has 32 goals and 67 assists in 447 career games. He is coming off an 18-point season with the New Jersey Devils.

This signing creates a logjam on the Bruins’ blueline, so it will be interesting to see if any additional moves are made to upgrade the forward group.
