10th year veteran right wing Michel Ouellet(28) was traded from the Tampa Bay Lightning organization, where he won the Calder Cup Championship last season with AHL affiliate Norfolk Admirals, to Boston Bruins in a draft day deal.
If signed, he’ll most likely be reassigned to Providence to start 2012/2013.
In the AHL he has 105 goals and 131 assists in 330 regular and postseason games.
No doubt the 30-year old, 6’1″ 210 lbs. forward will bring some much needed size to the P-Bruins‘ lineup but they are certainly going to need him to regain that scoring touch to help them get back into the playoffs for the first time in a few seasons.
He could also pull some effective 4th line duties for the big club if injuries occur.
