BOSTON (WPRI) — The Boston Bruins made some last-minute moves ahead of Monday’s NHL trade deadline.

Bruins General Manager Don Sweeney announced Monday morning they have acquired forwards Taylor Hall and Curtis Lazar from the Buffalo Sabres in exchange for a second-round draft pick and forward Anders Bjork.

Hall, 29, won the Hart Memorial Trophy with the New Jersey Devils in 2018. He was also the No. 1 overall pick in the 2010 NHL Draft.

The 6-foot-1 forward has two goals and 17 assists for 19 points in 37 games with the Sabres this season.

Lazar, 26, has recorded five goals and four assists for nine points in 33 games this season with Buffalo.

Both will face their now-former Sabres teammates plenty of times through the end of the regular season with the Bruins scheduled to play Buffalo six more times, including Tuesday night.

Earlier on Sunday, the Bruins also acquired veteran defenseman Mike Reilly from the Ottawa Senators for a third-round pick.
