fifth NHL team on Wednesday when he agreed to a one-year deal with
the Boston Bruins.

The Bruins had been in the market for a veteran goaltender after free

"Felix has been a solid NHL goaltender for a number of years," Bruins
general manager Mike O'Connell said. "He's won playoff rounds and he
gives us another veteran with experience."
Potvin, 32, has spent the last two-plus seasons with the Los Angeles
Kings. He played in 42 games last season and was 17-20-3 with three
shutouts and a 2.66 goals-against average before suffering a knee
injury on January 28 that ended his season.
Potvin is 254-252-79 with a 2.78 GAA in 607 games with Toronto, the
New York Islanders, Vancouver and Los Angeles.
He has had seven 20-win seasons, including three campaigns with 30 or
