Benoit Pouliot, Bruins left winger
The 26-year-old left wing—formerly the fourth overall pick in the 2005 NHL draft—signed with the Bruins as a free agent before the start of the 2011-12 season.
The Bruins No. 3 left winger had 16 goals and 16 assists in 74 games and had a $1.1 million salary cap figure in 2011-12.
In June, the Bruins traded the rights to Pouliot to Tampa Bay for Michel Ouellet and Tampa Bay's fifth round choice (Seth Griffith) in the 2012 NHL draft.
