The Boston Bruins swapped forwards with the Colorado Avalanche Monday, adding Max Talbot and Paul Carey in exchange for Jordan Caron and Boston's sixth-round pick in 2016.

The deal was first reported by TSN's Darren Dreger.

Talbot, 31, tallied five goals and 10 assists in 63 games this season, averaging 13 minutes of ice time for the Avs. He won a Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009, scoring both Penguins goals in Game 7 to clinch the title. He adds depth for the Bruins, who currently cling to Eastern Conference's final wild card spot. He has one year remaining on his deal after the season.

[daily_cut.NHL] Carey, 26, has appeared in 10 games for Colorado this season, recording just one point.

The Bruins selected Caron, 24, with the 25th overall selection in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He bounced back and forth between Boston and its AHL affiliate in Providence over the past five seasons, and has 28 career points. Caron will be an unrestricted free agent after the season.

In a separate trade, the Bruins exchanged forwards with Minnesota, dealing Zack Phillips for Jared Knight. Boston also acquired forward Brett Connolly from Tampa Bay on Monday morning.
