Bruins begin salary-cap cutting by trading Hunwick to Avs

It appears as if  Boston Bruins’ general manager Peter Chiarelli has taken to take the first step in trimming his hockey club’s salary-cap to make room for center Marc Savard, who is soon to be coming off the long-term injured reserve list.

The Bruins have reported that they have acquired defenseman Colby Cohen from the Colorado Avalanche in exchange for blue-liner Matt Hunwick.

Huniwck, the under-achieving impending restricted free-agent defenseman, is in the final year of his contract, making $1.45 million.

Cohen, a former standout with the Boston University Terriers, will report to the Bruins’ AHL affiliate, Providence Bruins.

Hunwick was Boston’s seventh-round, 224th overall pick, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.  He has appeared in 164 career NHL games—all with the Bruins—and tallied 13-32-45 totals. This season, Hunwick plaed in 22 games and registered a mere 1-2-3 scoring totals.
