The Bruins have traded 2008 second-round pick Max Sauve to Chicago for forward Rob Flick.
Flick was selected by Chicago in the fourth round of the 2010 draft. The 22-year-old has three goals and two assists in 51 games for Rockford, Chicago’s AHL affiliate. Flick has 97 penalty minutes. The 6-foot-2, 208-pound Flick will be a size upgrade over the perpetually injured Sauve.
Sauve scored 10 goals and 13 assists for Providence this season. Sauve is a fast and skilled wing, but has never been able to stay healthy.
