Former Bruin knows his role with his new team

In a significant trade during this year's draft, the Boston Bruins sent Taylor Hall and Nick Foligno to the Chicago Blackhawks in exchange for prospects Alec Regula and Ian Mitchell.

The trade was seen as a tough blow and a roster adjustment for the Bruins.

Following the trade, Foligno wasted no time in signing a one-year contract worth $4 million with the Blackhawks.

In a recent media statement, he expressed his role and purpose with the team, emphasizing his commitment to mentoring the young players and shaping the team's future.

Blackhawks fans can certainly look forward to his contributions in that regard.

At 35 years old, Foligno is approaching the latter stages of his career. In his previous season with Boston, he recorded 10 goals and 16 assists, accumulating 26 points in 60 games.

It's unfortunate that he won't be part of a competitive team like Boston this season, as he joins the Blackhawks.

We extend our best wishes to Foligno as he embarks on this new chapter in Chicago.
