Mike Mottau Calls Bruins Trade 'A Dream Come True'

Mike Mottau, newly acquired Boston Bruins defenseman and Avon, Mass. native, called his trade to the B's a "dream come true" (via WEEI). Mottau and former Islanders teammate Brian Rolston joined Boston as part of a four-player deal at the NHL Trade Deadline.

Mottau, who played his college hockey at Boston College, said about the move

"Growing up a Bruins fans, and following the team throughout my whole professional career, finally getting a chance to put on the sweater was really special this morning, even just to go out for morning skate," Mottau said after Tuesday's morning skate.

Mottau said he followed the Bruins' Stanley Cup run closely last season.

"Even playing with the Islanders last year, I was home for the Cup run. Watching the guys go through it, it was pretty amazing for the city and these guys," he said. "I know quite a few guys and it's great to be a part of it now."

Mottau is expected to be in the lineup against the Senators on Tuesday night.
