Bruins bolster their blue-line with the addition of Greg Zanon.

The Boston Bruins made one final move before the NHL Trade Deadline, picking up defenseman Greg Zanon from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for Steven Kampfer on Monday, via NHL.com. Kampfer, 23, played in just 10 games this year and only got on the ice when injuries opened up playing time.

Zanon is more of a stay-at-home defender, but has proved adept at blocking shots and making life difficult for opposing players. In 39 games with the Wild this year he 104 blocked shots and delivered 77 hits. A year ago he had 212 blocked shots, which was the second highest total in the NHL. Among players with at least 100 blocked shots this year, none have played in as few games as Zanon. He's also contributed two goals and four assists.

Zanon will likely be paired with Dennis Seidenberg, who is 13th in the NHL with 131 blocked shots.
