The Bruins have traded defenseman Johnny Boychuk to the Islanders for second-round picks in the 2015 and 2016 drafts and a conditional 2015 third-round pick. The B’s will get New York’s 2015 third-rounder if the Islanders trade Boychuk to an Eastern Conference team this season.
Apparently this was all about salary cap room. Definitely going to miss those beautiful eyes. He was a solid defender and scoring threat. Goodbye Johnny Rockets!
