Defending champs shore up roster at trade deadline

- Associated Press - Monday, February 27, 2012

BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Bruins have acquired forward Brian Rolston and defenseman Mike Mottau from the New York Islanders at the trade deadline.

Both players have previous experience in the city. Rolston played for the Bruins from 1999-2004, and Mottau went to Boston College.

Rolston had been put on waivers, and he cleared Monday before the trade. Mottau was activated from the injured list on Sunday after missing 26 games with a concussion.

The Bruins sent two prospects to New York: Yannick Riendeau and Marc Cantin. They will both be assigned to Bridgeport of the American Hockey League.

The Bruins also sent defenseman Steve Kampfer to the Minnesota Wild for defenseman Greg Zanon.
