As the NHL regular season draws closer, some familiar faces from the Boston Bruins' past are still searching for teams to join.

Let's take a look at some notable former Bruins who are currently free agents.
Phil Kessel: Kessel, a former All-Star forward, is eager to play this season and might even consider a professional tryout (PTO) contract.
He had a decent season with the Vegas Golden Knights, scoring 14 goals and 36 points in 82 games.
There's potential for him to make an impact as a third-line scorer and power-play specialist, especially on a one-year deal.
Jaroslav Halak: Halak is determined to reach the 300-win milestone in his career, and he's open to playing instead of retiring.
While he had a modest season with the New York Rangers, he could still be a valuable backup goaltender, possibly on a PTO. The Tampa Bay Lightning could be a suitable destination for him.
Nick Ritchie: This power forward may have had a down season in terms of scoring, but his physical presence with 218 hits didn't go unnoticed.
Ritchie is likely to secure a one-year deal and can contribute as a gritty bottom-six forward.
Danton Heinen: Heinen's recent performance hasn't been stellar, but he's shown promise as a serviceable third-liner in the past.
Expect him to earn a PTO before the season starts, offering teams a low-risk option for added depth.
Nick Holden: Holden, who was once a rental pickup for the Bruins, has maintained a steady presence on the blue line.
He's likely to garner interest across the league, especially from teams seeking experienced defensemen. Whether he decides to play another season remains to be seen.
Anton Khudobin and John Moore: Two other former Bruins, Khudobin and Moore, are currently without contracts for the upcoming season.
Khudobin might end up in the AHL if signed, while Moore hasn't played since the 2021-22 season.
It'll be intriguing to see where these former Bruins land as they search for new homes before the season kicks off.
