The Boston Bruins found a bit more veteran help out of the Minnesota Wild, acquiring Greg Zanon in a deal that sent much-younger defenseman, Steve Kampfer, the other way.  Zanon will be employed to help the Bruins keep the puck out of their own net, more than putting the puck in the opposition net.  In return, the Wild get another building block in their stable in Kampfer, also someone who may actually be able to step into the line-up right away, if needed.

This is deal in no way a blockbuster, but for the Bruins, they just needed to shore up some depth, heading down the stretch.
