The Flyers traded Rinaldo to the Bruins on Monday for a third-round draft choice in the 2017 NHL Draft, NHL.com reports.

Rinaldo, who tallied one goal and six points to go along with 109 penalty minutes in 58 games for Philadelphia this past season, adds depth and grit to the B's forward mix, but he's presumably ticketed for a fourth-line/agitator role that limits his fantasy utility to PIM-heavy formats.

Rinaldo supplied a goal and set up another in Saturday's 7-2 blowout of the Red Wings. He also collected seven hits and three shots on goal.

With the two-point outing, Rinaldo doubled his offensive output from the previous 45 games he's played this season. The high hit total was less of an aberration for Rinaldo, whose grinding style on the fourth line lends itself to more chippiness than it does scoring. Roster him only if you're in need of help in the hit and PIM categories, as he'll generally provide goose eggs everywhere else.
