The Boston Bruins acquired defenseman Mike Reilly from the Ottawa Senators for a third-round draft pick in 2022.

What does it give the Boston Bruins
The Bruins are currently ravaged by injuries to their blueline, so adding Reilly should definitely help. Since he is coming from a Canadian-based team, he may not be available to play for Boston right away.

What does it give the Ottawa Senators
The Senators did well to land a third-rounder in '22 in exchange for a potential unrestricted free agent in Reilly, although the latter will be missed in the short term because he was seeing a lot of ice time.

Fantasy impact
Reilly should not be owned in most leagues down the stretch, because he may not be able to play a lot of regular-season games for Boston due to COVID-19 protocols.
