The Boston Bruins chapter of veteran forward's Maxime Talbot's professional hockey career has officially come to a close.
Talbot played out the final year of his contract with the American Hockey League's Providence Bruins, and now according to a report from reporter Patrick Williams, Talbot has signed a new deal with the Kontinental Hockey League's Lokomotiv Yaroslavl, the details of the deal have not been disclosed.
Talbot's time with Boston was dominated by injuries and injury concerns, and over the three seasons he spent with the organization he was never able to make a consistent impact on the team, even at the American Hockey League level.
For that reason this move by the KHL's Yaroslavl has to be viewed as somewhat of a gamble, with no reason to believe that Talbot will remain healthy. As for the Bruins, the $1.8 million in cap space will probably be far more valuable to them than Talbot was as a player.
