Well, the Bruins finally got a defenseman.
Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli has traded center Vladimir Sobotka to the St. Louis Blues for unsigned draft choice David Warsofsky.
The 20-year-old Warsofsky, who was originally drafted in the fourth-round (95th overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft by the Blues, is a junior at Boston University and a native of Marshfield, Massachusetts. In 79 games with the Terriers, the 5’9″ Marshfield, MA, native totaled 15-31-46 and 75 PIM. He also played for the U.S. National Development team in 2007-08 with 4-2-6 in 15 games.
Sobotka, 22, was an impending restricted free-agent come Jul. 1, and was most likely dealt to open-up a center spot for No. 2 pick, Tyler Seguin.
