The Boston Bruins acquired ahead Garnet Hathaway and defenseman Dmitry Orlov on Thursday in a three-team commerce with the Washington Capitals and Minnesota Wild forward of the NHL’s March 3 deadline.

The Capitals acquired Craig Smith, a 2023 first-round choose, 2024 third-round choose and a 2025 second-round choose within the deal.

Washington initially traded Orlov to the Wild in trade for ahead Andrei Svetlakov. The Capitals retained half of the defenseman’s wage.

The Wild then flipped Orlov to the Bruins for a 2023 fifth-round choose. Minnesota retained 25 p.c of Orlov’s remaining wage in that deal.

Hathaway is within the last 12 months of a four-year, $6 million deal valued at $1.5 million yearly.

The 31-year-old, who’s a local of Kennebunkport, Maine, had been with the Capitals since 2019 after starting his profession with the Calgary Flames in 2015.

Hathaway, a profession bottom-six participant, has notched 54 targets and 62 assists in 432 video games throughout eight seasons. Whereas he is not identified for scoring, his grit and depth are precisely what Boston wants coming into the postseason.

With the departure of Smith, Hathaway figures to fit in on both Boston’s third or fourth line. His placement within the lineup will depend upon whether or not head coach Jim Montgomery desires to interrupt up the fourth line of A.J. Greer, Trent Frederic and Nick Foligno, which has been spectacular this season.

If Hathaway is positioned on the third line, he’d slot in alongside Charlie Coyle and Taylor Corridor. If he is positioned on the fourth line, it is attainable Foligno would transfer as much as play alongside that duo.

As for Orlov, he is within the last 12 months of a six-year, $30.6 million contract price $5.1 million yearly. He had a modified no-trade clause on his contract, per CapFriendly, which implies Boston was on his record of groups that he could possibly be moved to.

The 31-year-old has notched three targets and 16 assists in 43 video games with Washington this season. He had spent his whole 11-year profession with the Capitals, which chosen him within the second spherical of the 2009 draft.

By 686 video games with the Capitals, Orlov notched 60 targets and 256 assists. He boasts a profession 104 plus/minus ranking and was a member of Washington’s 2018 Stanley Cup-winning crew.

Boston had been reported to be out there for a left facet defenseman this winter and had even been linked to Arizona Coyotes’ Jakob Chychrun and Columbus Blue Jackets’ Vladislav Gavrikov.

The transfer for Orlov, a left defenseman, may rule out a commerce for both of these gamers.

It is unclear the place Orlov would slot in on Boston’s defensive unit, although he was on Washington’s high defensive pairing alongside Trevor van Riemsdyk this season.

Matt Grzelcyk is at present on the left facet of Boston’s high defensive pair with Charlie McAvoy. Hampus Lindholm and Derek Forbort spherical out the franchise’s left-side defensive unit. Forbort could possibly be pressured out of the lineup following the Orlov acquisition.

The Bruins are in motion on Thursday night time in opposition to the Seattle Kraken and have video games in opposition to the Vancouver Canucks, Edmonton Oilers and Calgary Flames developing earlier than returning to Boston on March 2.

It is cheap to imagine Hathaway and Orlov will be part of the Bruins on their present street journey, but it surely’s unclear when they may make their debuts.
