The Boston Bruins have wasted no time restocking their blue line as they have signed defenceman Derek Morris to a one-year deal worth $3.3 million.

Earlier in the day the Bruins opened a spot in their defensive corps by trading Aaron Ward to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for forward Patrick Eaves who was later waived.

This will be the fifth NHL stop for the Edmonton native who also patrolled the blue line for the Rangers, Coyotes, Avalanche and Flames during his 10-year career.

In 75 games last season split between New York and Phoenix, the 30-year old Morris had five goals and 15 assists.
 
Morris was originally a first round pick, 13th overall by the Calgary Flames in the 1996 NHL Entry Draft.
