The high-flying Boston Bruins could bulk up before the playoffs, and have their sights set on Edmonton Oilers winger Patrick Maroon, sources told Joe Haggerty of NBC Sports Boston.

A pending unrestricted free agent, Maroon carries an affordable $1.5-million cap hit, and could bring some added size and a scoring touch to the Bruins.

Over the past two seasons in Edmonton, Maroon has combined for 40 goals playing alongside Oilers superstar Connor McDavid. He recorded a career-high 42 points with the Oilers last season.

Where Maroon will close out this year’s campaign will be known soon enough, as the trade deadline is set for Feb. 26.
