Following a three-year stint residing in Orange County, California, defenseman Kevin Shattenkirk sought a change of environment.

Despite relishing the abundant sunshine of SoCal, the Anaheim Ducks' underwhelming performance, marked by a combined 71-114-35 record, left him yearning for a team capable of contending for the Stanley Cup.

Having previously won and lifted the coveted trophy with the Tampa Bay Lightning inside the Edmonton bubble back in 2020, the 34-year-old seasoned player remained resolute in joining another team boasting championship potential. He believes he has discovered the ideal match with the Boston Bruins.

During a Zoom interview on Wednesday, Shattenkirk expressed his excitement at the prospect of aligning himself with a Stanley Cup contender.

"Getting back to a team that's a Stanley Cup contender was exciting. I've kind of lost that over the last three years."

He conveyed his eagerness to be part of a team fueled by aspirations of championship glory, a sentiment he sorely missed throughout his tenure with the Ducks, who were in the process of rebuilding.

With his focus firmly fixed on pursuing glory, Shattenkirk is prepared to make significant contributions to the Bruins' relentless pursuit of the ultimate prize.

Given his vast experience and skill set, he represents a valuable addition to the team's defensive lineup as they strive to compete at the highest echelons.
