After signing free agent defenceman Tomas Kaberle to a contract early in the day, the Carolina Hurricanes traded away another defender.
The Hurricanes have sent defenceman Joe Corvo to the Boston Bruins in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft.
The 34-year-old Corvo had 11 goals and 29 assists in 82 games last season.
Corvo has 79 goals and 258 points in 568 career games over eight NHL campaigns. He was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the fourth round of the 1997 NHL Entry Draft.
