Boston Bruins Make Two Trades Involving AHL Players
BOSTON, MA – Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the team has made two trades. They have acquired forward Juraj Simek (pronounced “YUHR-igh SHEE-mehk”) from the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for Levi Nelson. Simek will report to Boston’s minor league affiliate in Providence (American Hockey League). They have also acquired defenseman Sean Zimmerman and a conditional seventh round pick in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft from the Florida Panthers in exchange for Jeff LoVecchio and Jordan Knackstedt. Zimmerman will also report to Providence.

The 23-year-old Simek has spent the 2010-2011 with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League, where he has posted 3-6=9 totals in 21 games. The 2010-2011 season marked Simek’s third with the Admirals and fourth professional season overall. In 2009-10, he skated in 75 games and set professional career highs in goals, assists and points with a 21-15=36 line. The Presov, Slovakia native was originally drafted by the Vancouver Canucks in the fourth round (167th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.  

The 23-year-old Zimmerman skated in seven games with the Rochester Americans of the AHL this season. Last year, the 6’2’’ 200-pound native of Denver, CO played in 72 games for the San Antonio Rampage with two goals, seven assists and 105 penalty minutes. The two goals matched his career high as a pro, while his seven assists and 105 penalty minutes established new career bests. Zimmerman was originally drafted by the New Jersey Devils in the sixth round (170th overall) of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft.

This season Nelson skated in 14 games for the Providence Bruins with 4-3=7 totals, and registered 19 penalty minutes. Nelson was originally drafted by the Bruins in the sixth round (158th overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.  

LoVecchio played in 22 games for the P-Bruins this year with 0-3=3 totals. He was signed by the Bruins as a free agent on March 18, 2008 after playing collegiately at Western Michigan University.

Knackstedt appeared in 22 games for Providence this season with 7-5=12 totals. He was originally drafted by the Bruins in the seventh round (189th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
