According to TSN's Bob McKenzie, the Bruins are trying to complete a trade for 33-year-old Canucks defenseman Dan Hamhuis.

Worth keeping in mind, however, is that Hamhuis has a full no-trade clause, meaning he could block a potential trade to Boston if he were so inclined. Hamhuis, a left shot, will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Should he be acquired by Boston, he would likely slot in as Boston's second-pairing left defenseman and kill penalties. A potential acquisition of him would allow the Bruins to play Dennis Seidenberg on the right side on any of their pairings or on the left of the third pairing. Here is a comparison of Hamhuis and Seidenberg, the latter of whom has been Boston's second-pairing left defenseman for much of the season:
