Boston Bruins sign ex-Star Marty Turco
By Mark Stepneski
The Boston Bruins have signed ex-Star goalie Marty Turco. Boston backup Tuuka Rask is out 4-6 weeks with a lower abdomen/groin strain. Turco has to clear waivers and won't be eligible for the playoffs.
Here's an excerpt from the Bruins' release on the signing:
Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed goaltender Marty Turco to a one-year contract. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal will not be disclosed at this time.
Turco will be placed on waivers and if he clears waivers, he will join the Bruins on Wednesday, March 7. Please also note that if he does clear waivers, he will not be eligible to play in the 2012 Stanley Cup Playoffs should the Bruins qualify, as he is joining the club after the Trade Deadline.
