Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced Thursday that the club has acquired forwards Loui Eriksson, Matt Fraser, Reilly Smith and defenseman Joe Morrow from the Dallas Stars in exchange for forwards Rich Peverley, Tyler Seguin and defenseman Ryan Button.

TSN reported earlier Thursday that the blockbuster, seven-player trade had been completed, with the swap of 21-year-oldSeguin for Eriksson as the key.

Seguin was selected second overall in the first round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft. According to TSN, he signed a six-year, $34.5 million contract before the NHL lockout began last year. The deal takes effect this coming season and has a salary cap hit of $5.75 million.

Eriksson, 27, has three years remaining on his contract and has a cap hit of $4.25 million per year, TSN reported.

He played in all 48 games last season for Dallas, recording 12 goals and 17 assists. In the four seasons before the lockout, the winger recorded at least 26 goals in each campaign.
