Bruins ink veteran defenseman, Wozniewski, to a one-year deal

The Boston Bruins announced on Wednesday afternoon that they've signed 29-year-old veteran defenseman Andy Wozniewski to a one-year contract. Wozniewski played mostly in the AHL last season for both the Peoria Rivermen and the Scranton Wilkes-Barre Penguins, and racked up 3 goals and 18 assists in 74 games. Wozniewski also played a single game for the St. Louis Blues last season, and has 12 career points and 81 penalty minutes in 77 NHL games played for the Blues and Maple Leafs in his career. Wozniewski also played 17 games as a freshman for UMass-Lowell in 1999-2000 before transferring to the University of Wisconsin. Wozniewski should provide the Bruins with additional depth along the blueline if injuries hit during training camp or the early season months.

T.O. to the Patriots: I might bring my spy camera out

FOXBOROUGH - Buffalo Bills superstar receiver Terrell Owens waited till the last question to make his biggest splash on Wednesday afternoon's conference call with the local media.

I'll see him Monday." The 35-year-old receiver missed most of training camp with a toe injury but is expected to be ready for the game against the Patriots.

Brady on Seymour: I've seen all of it

Tom Brady said that he is ready for the season opener against the Buffalo Bills on Monday night at Gillette Stadium and believes the team is as well, even with trade of Richard Seymour eight days before the first game. "I've seen all of it and I'm very fortunate to be in the same place my entire career," Brady said. "It's going to happen to all of us." The quarterback, who said he is comfortable with his knee brace, said leaders will eventually step into the roles of Seymour and Tedy Bruschi. "It remains to be seen," Brady said. "Every team has turnover. Every team has change. I've seen all of it. I've been fortunate to have been in the same place my whole career." For more, visit the football blog, It Is What It Is
