Colton Parayko

Boston Bruins In Talks With Former Stanley Cup Champion

Published February 24, 2024 at 12:02

In light of recent defensive challenges, the Boston Bruins are actively seeking solutions to bolster their blue line.

General Manager Don Sweeney is leaving no stone unturned in his quest to fortify the team's defensive core.

Among the top targets under consideration is Noah Hanifin of the Calgary Flames, who has expressed a desire to relocate to the United States. Another contender is Colton Parayko, a defenseman for the St. Louis Blues. The presence of former Bruins GM Peter Chiarelli at recent games has sparked speculation about potential trade discussions.

As the trade deadline looms, teams are vying for Parayko's services, drawn to his imposing physical presence and solid defensive skills. Analysts like Jeremy Roenick praise his ability as a defensive stalwart. If Hanifin falls through, Parayko could be the key to the Bruins' postseason aspirations.

While awaiting the return of injured defensemen Hampus Lindholm and Matt Grzelcyk, Sweeney remains proactive in exploring options, with Parayko emerging as a prime target to address the team's defensive needs.
