    Bruins begin salary-cap cutting by trading Hunwick to Avs

    Joe Makarski November 29, 2010

    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.
