Newly-signed Paul Postma may be able to switch to the left side in order to fill a Bruin need.
Boston has a very strong right-shot defense but needs some help on the left side. Postma, who normally shoots right-handed, has had some experience in junior hockey shooting from the left. If Postma can make that switch, he may be able to carve out a spot on the Bruins' third pairing. If he can do that, he may also get some power-play ice time as Boston GM Don Sweeney seems intrigued by his heavy shot and power-play work in the minors. Keep an eye on Postma during training camp.

Jacob Trouba's trade request might give a defender like Paul Postma a shot at regular playing time with the Jets this season.

He appeared in just 26 games with the Jets last season and would like to play on a more consistent basis.
