There have been Internet rumors circulating that the Boston Bruins are on the verge of signing 34-year-old Finnish goalie Petri Vehanen this summer, but an NHL source has confirmed to ESPNBoston.com that is unlikely to happen.

Vehanen was 16-17-5 with a 2.35 GAA and .916 GAA for the Kazan Ak-Bars in the KHL this past season. With Tim Thomas, Tuukka Rask and Anton Khudobin -- who is signed to a one-way contract in the NHL -- the Bruins already have a crowded crease heading into next season and, according to the source, that's a key factor in not pursuing Vehanen.
