The Bruins have added to their defense by acquiring Wade Redden from the St. Louis Blues for a draft pick. Redden is the veteran left-shot defenseman the Bruins needed heading into the stretch run. Comcast SportsNet New England first reported the deal.

Redden has two goals and three assists in 23 games this season, averaging 14:59 of ice time. He projects to be a depth defenseman who could assume some power-play shifts. Redden is averaging 0:50 of power-play ice time.

The 35-year-old Redden was teammates in Ottawa with Zdeno Chara and Chris Kelly.
