He the 11th member of the Bruins to sign overseas, the most of any NHL team.

Boychuk joins fellow defensemen Zdeno Chara, Andrew Ference, and Dennis Seidenberg overseas. Adam McQuaid is the only projected defensive starter not playing hockey.

Boychuk is the only current NHLer on the Red Bulls roster, but former Bruin goalie Alex Auld is there.

Boychuk is coming off a season in which he set career highs in games played (77), penalty minutes (53) and plus/minus (+27). His five goals last season are tied for the most he has scored in a single season.

According to CSNNE.com, Boychuk leaves almost immediately and won't be back until the lockout is over.
